Growing Knowledge One Shovel at a Time
April 21, 2015
What happens when you teach individuals how to grow their own food? More than you think. This is what the Garden for Growth project at Lethbridge Family Services is all about, teaching people more than just how to grow food; it’s about growing knowledge and life skills. To kick off this project, a special sod turning and open house is being hosted on April 21st at 10am. Local contractors, suppliers, and stakeholders are invited to this ceremony to learn more about this project and how everyone can get involved to create an outdoor garden and treatment space for the clients of Lethbridge Family Services. The goal of the garden is to create an amazing outdoor space which will teach LFS clients how to grow their own food which they will then learn how to cook and have an outdoor area available for client care. It will also teach them how to take care of outdoor living space and provide them with a sense of pride as they donate some of the food to local food banks. Their knowledge of horticulture, agriculture, and life skills will be dramatically improved through this new initiative.
