<strong>Coming this spring from The Commonwell: the&#160;</strong><strong>SEEDit</strong><strong>&#160;initiative is back!</strong>

Coming this spring from The Commonwell: the SEEDit initiative is back!

In 2021, Commonwell launched SEEDit to give families across the province the opportunity to grow food in their own backyards, support local business and give back by donating a portion of their harvest to their local foodbank or other sharing opportunity. This spring they’re welcoming back SEEDit and it is even bigger and better! This year more garden centres and geography will be covered, and 2 separate opportunities to participate in the program are available. - a community grant program and the individual voucher program. Last year, SEEDit surpassed their goal in the amount of food that was able to be shared, so Commonwell have more than doubled the target for sharing to 5000 pounds for 2022!

Starting on April 11th, 2022, community gardens will be able to apply for a grant to support their garden projects. We’re have over $10,000 to share for this initiative. Then, on May 9th, 2022 the individual voucher program will begin. Individuals across Ontario will be able to request a $50 voucher to help them purchase food growing supplies to enable them to grow their own produce and share with their family, friends, neighbours, and/or local food banks. This will work just like last year with participating garden centres listed on our website.

SEEDit is open to everyone to join the community and obtain a voucher.  We invite you to share this with your friends and family and your communities at large.

The SEEDit Facebook Community page can be found here.
