Project, now in its 7th year, got major boost with acquisition of new parcel of land

Each summer, the Askîy Project (Askîy means the Earth in Cree) gives a batch of interns the opportunity to learn how to plant, maintain, harvest and sell food using sustainable techniques.
The project has grown during the last seven years, but it took a big step forward after it acquired a new plot of land at the old Riversdale Lawn Bowling Club site last summer.
The additional land meant the interns could now offer food in a new way.
“This year we decided to try a community shared agriculture model (CSA),” said Terri Lynn Paulson, an urban agriculture co-ordinator with CHEP Good Food — the community organization that runs the askîy internship program.
Previously, interns were limited to growing food in containers on a “brownfield site,” meaning seeds couldn’t be sowed directly into the ground. Now, they can use an expansive, in-ground plot.
“Because we have this in-ground space, we have irrigation and it makes it a lot easier to grow more food and have more predictable yields.”
