The B.C. government is providing funding of up to $25,000 each for 10 communities so they can work directly with their local residents in helping grow their own food.
Investment Agriculture Foundation Of BC
The goal of Grow Local BC is to provide a deeper connection between B.C. food, B.C. communities and the people that live in them. By encouraging British Columbians to grow their own fresh fruit and vegetables, they will help strengthen local food supply security.
Urban and semi-rural local government and community organizations are encouraged to apply. The funding can be used to build educational activities, including workshops, to encourage and support residents in growing food at home and in their local community.
