Hi all! We have had a lot of newcomers to the site recently. I thought this would be a good time to invite you to tell us what you're growing or want to grow. What unique ideas you have in mind for your garden and any ways we can begin supporting one another in success!

Hi all, We recently discovered this amazing grant opportunity and want to spread the word among Educators. Now more than ever its so important to bring food growing into our lives and the lives of children. Growing, eating and sharing healthy, local, sustainable produce is a powerful environmentally healthy, social and economical action. We have a dream of helping schools feed their communities. Please help us by sharing this grant link with anyone you know in the school system. The grant provided many opportunities small and large! Pretty cool! https://www.wholekidsfoundation.org/programs/canadian-farm-to-school-grant

Hi everyone! Summer is pressing on and many of you have been diving into your garden tower adventure as new growers. This is the most challenging phase of the journey since everything is new and unfamiliar. We want to be able to offer support, encouragement and share your success. We also want you to have one another as support. So please come to the forum to ask questions, share celebrations and offer advice. As always feel free to reach out directly too. Kate and Eric

Hey friends! Spring is here and gardens are trending this year! Nothing like quarantine to inspire new hobbies :) Time to start seeding for home towers and gardens alike. What are you growing? What are your favorite summer fruits and veggies? Do you have canning recipes or tried and true family methods to share? Let's get this forum active and start growing a sense of community to match those sweet gardens! On our end. We have our sights set on shareables and preserves so I have ordered 3 sorts of tomatoes, beans, peas,cucumber, squash, chard, lettuce, spinach and a lot of herbs for pickling and preserving. I am determined that this year I will also learn to harvest my own seeds. What is your goal for the summer??

COVID 19 has been the same for our household as so many others. We have been forced to adapt and adjust to "a new normal". Forced to set aside anxiety and apprehension, to focus our energy on figuring this out! How DO you support your children full time, without parks, play grounds and playdates? How DO you maintain full time work (yes...we know we are very lucky to be working) while managing the children? Honestly...we have no idea 😅 We know we don't have to get it all perfect. Our priorities are mental health and a peaceful home. The rest comes later. We just do our best, which is all any of us should expect of one another. It's a time when we feel a lot of uncertainty and a serious lack of control. One blessing in all of this has been the sense that we actually have something to offer. We have had SO many inquiries and several towers heading out the door. We have also been given permission to use a local green house to set up our farm cell and begin growing food. In the coming weeks we will have 400-1000 plants on the grow to help feed our community and support our food banks. What a gift! This matters. This pandemic experience highlights so many aspects of life, communtiy and shifting priorities. For us it has solidified our commitment to helping people grow their food at home and in their communities. The single most important thing we feel we can do. We understand the months and years ahead will be challenging. As we emerge from quarantine and begin to resuscitate our local small businesses, it will take time, team work and loads of support. We know we haven't got a magic wand...but what we do have is a loving hand and a desire to be of support. We look forward to hugging our friends and neighbours. We look forward to working side by side in the community. In the mean time we are here. Coaching (from a safe social distance 😉), growing, hoping and sending kind thoughts to all.🌱🍃 Stay well!

Slowing but surely this little community of home growers is becoming larger. Each of us is at different stages in the experience. Getting comfortable, gaining confidence, experimenting, enjoying. At every phase there are things to learn and adjust. We want the forum to be a platform for shared learning, discussion, support and advice. If you have a question, want to offer some insight or just celebrate your first big aeroponic salad! Let the forum be a hub of kind words and encouragement. Afterall, everything grows better that way :)
