Are you ready to have your youth discover how rewarding it is to nurture and grow your own garden? Here is a great opportunity for them to better understand where food comes from and how to create food security!

We provide the seeds, you grow the garden! Contest open to youth aged 9-12 and residing in the Shuswap. Gardens will be scored at the end of July-Mid August with a special showcase in the Salmon Arm Fall Fair.

While learning to grow fruits & veggies is amazing all by itself, there are great prizes to be won for the top 3 gardens!. All scored gardens will receive a weekend Fair Pass for participating.

Register now for the Project Grow- Youth Garden Contest! Once you register, you will be given more information on how to order your seeds, and where and when you can pick them up. Registration closes on May 14th

Grant options available and there is a Facebook Group dedicated to support all participants.

Project Grow is an initiative of the Salmon Arm Fair, Buckerfield’s and the Shuswap Food Action and supported by SASCU & Grow and Change Horticultural Services
