The community is everything. Absolutely everything. JoatU wouldn’t even be an idea if not for the concept of community.
So what better way to reach out to the community than to plant vegetable gardens in their front yards? Food brings people together, we know this. So let’s plant the seeds (literally) to bring people together!
JoatU has enlisted the help and support from Coop Sur Genereux, a cooperative home in Plateau Mont-Royal of eleven years to help organize this great feat. We will be planting a series of raised-bed boxes that will be overflowing with fresh produce to be shared by land owners and volunteers.
And on top of all this, we have already raised over $2000 thanks to Coop Sur Genereux, JoatU, and the Neighborhood2Neighborhood grant! Help us raise the rest to get our project up and running! For every dollar we raise, the grant will double it! So every donation really counts!
Our next steps are getting community donations, finding the supplies we need, the yard space to plant in, and the volunteers to help make this happen in spring 2015
