Editor's note: The survey period has now closed.
Sudbury’s urban agriculture group wants to hear from you. Sudbury Shared Harvest has received a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to help it develop a plan to guide the group into the future.
Part of that strategic planning process is to seek public input. The $56,000 grant will fund a six-month project with the goal of strengthening “the organization’s ability to establish and sustain urban agriculture projects in the coming years.”
Everyone who completes a short survey will be eligible to win $100 in gardening services from Sudbury Shared Harvest’s new social enterprise.
“The impact of this Ontario Trillium Foundation grant cannot be underestimated,” said
Jessica Blaauw, chair of Sudbury Shared Harvest. “We’re a young organization
and we’ve been successful with many individual projects until now, but this is the first
time we’ll have the opportunity to work with experts to develop long-term plans that will
strengthen the organization as a whole.”
Sudbury Shared Harvest is a local charitable organization with “a mission to cultivate community health by connecting people, the food they eat and the land it comes from. We support people in gaining the knowledge, skills and resources they need to access or grow their own food in a way that enhances our urban environment.”
