GetGrowing Hunt Club 2021May 23, 2021 - By Barb Shea
It’s all over except for the growing. For the second year in a row, gardeners in Hunt Club were invited to sign up to receive a free seedling, package of vegetable seeds and an information pamphlet through GetGrowing Hunt Club. This year 250 seed kit packages were delivered door to door. The value of produce that can result from this locally grown harvest is $16,000! That’s a lot of nutritious green beans and carrots and tomatoes! As the growing season stretches in front of us, watch the Hunt Club Community Association Website, follow us on Facebook and Twitter , share pictures of your garden and learn of local initiatives such as opportunities to share excess produce.
GetGrowing Hunt Club is funded by the Hunt Club Community Association and City Councillor Riley Brockington. We are grateful to our sponsors: Lee Valley Tools, Richmond Nursery, BWYL Group and Riocan. And none of this would be possible without the many volunteers working with dedication and spirit during the COVID 19 pandemic. All of it was done to deliver the promise of fresh locally grown produce to doorsteps in our ‘hood. Thank you one and all!
