CHANGE Garden Supporter
We believe that good, local, fresh food is essential to a strong and vibrant community. This may seem like an obvious statement, but we know that nourishing, healthy food can be inaccessible to many. It’s time for a shift.
In collaboration with The Biscuit Eater Cafe & Books, and with support of the United Nations Association of Canada #GreenSpaces project, we are helping to shift these economic paradigms by converting private, unused land to food-producing public commons. In the coming weeks, we will be building a brand new community garden at the café, from the ground up. We have named the project the CHANGE (Creating Healthy Alternatives & New Green Economies) Garden. We recognize that we can’t do it alone, nor do we want to, so we are reaching out to our community for help! Your financial contributions will help us purchase materials, create programs, make green jobs and offer a Free Food Pantry to our community at the Saturday afternoon Mahone Bay Markets.
Our mission with this project is to bring people together around food, to grow community resilience, and to provide education and inspiration towards a more sustainable future on the South Shore and beyond.
All donations, big and small, will be recognized in an artistic installation in our community garden. We are so grateful your generosity. Thank you for growing this garden with us!
