KASSI is partnering with the Rideau 1000 Island Master Gardeners and Loving Spoonful to transform our local food and seed systems.
We know that producing food and saving seed are fundamental human rights. The COVID-19 crisis is laying bare the vulnerabilities and inequities of the industrial food system. To increase the resilience of our food system, we need to grow a LOT MORE food and seeds locally! And not just in rural areas. We can grow food and seeds almost anywhere — window sills, containers, balconies, backyards, front yards and community gardens.
We need #Garden4Good Ambassadors from every neighbourhood, every age group and every background to inspire, support and connect with their neighbours so that we can grow more local food and seeds!
Please fill out this form to let us know how you can help!
You can also join the #Garden4Good YGK Facebook Group. It was launched to bring people together who have a range of knowledge, skills and resources so that we all feel supported. There are weekly live Q&A zoom chats with Master Gardeners, a weekly small group vegetable garden coaching call, a forum for exchanging seeds and plants with your neighbours, and a hub for sharing the harvest!
