The Let's Get Growing! event is hosted by the Urban Pantry Project, which is a partnership between FruitShare Barrie and the Barrie Good Food Box.
We're considering expanding food access in Barrie to include more growing and we need your input.
You can expect to:
1. Learn how to leverage current urban agriculture projects to enhance client services.
2. Learn what city policies/bylaws/guidelines are needed to move projects forward.
3. Find new opportunities to get your hands in the dirt & help your community grow.
