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! The contest is open to youth aged 9-12 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 adjudicated gardens will receive a weekend Fair Pass for participating.
Grant options are 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.
