Kitchen Gardens Program
While the Southern Gulf Islands are a hotspot for home gardeners, many folks face barriers to growing their own food. Not having the space, time, or physical ability can all be challenges facing the hopeful gardener. The SGI CRC is donating three countertop gardens to seniors or families in need, and will provide the potting soil and seeds for them to start growing. The kits are equipped with self-timer grow lights and auto-watering capabilities, leading to convenience and ease while still learning how to grow food. Participants will receive training through Zoom workshops and will receive educational resources to support continuous growing. This pilot project is aiming to be the start of a larger initiative to address the barriers that vulnerable community members may face when wanting to grow their own food, resulting in self-sufficiency and resilience.
