GetGrowing Hunt Club 2021

May 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!

  1. Congratulations to HCCA Get Growing 2021
    team on yet another very successful year!
    Thank you for promoting neighbourly spirit
    and a sense of community.

  2. The ‘gardening bug’ has definitely bitten here in Hunt Club and ‘Get Growing Hunt Club’ has a lot to do with making it a community-building project, connecting neighbours all throughout Hunt Club, from Quinterra-Woods, east of the Rideau River all the way to Hunt Club Chase, just west of the Airport Parkway. Even with our neighbours in Wisteria Park and Windsor Park!
