IG: 🙆🏻‍♀️STOKED! Behold my plot for my inaugural entrance into the world of community gardening 🙌🏼🌱👩🏻‍🌾 Cuz I never ever have enough space to grow everything I want to grow at home plus this year I have zero places to grow anything just yet and I am dying to get started on some early season veggies. Patience? Wtffff is that, my seedlings are bursting out of their homes and I need to get my hands in the dirt. 🌱 How cool is this— you rent a plot for the season, but with that rental you are given 2 plots— one for you and an adjacent ‘community’ plot that you commit to caring for as well. And the food harvested from the community plot is donated to the local food bank!!!!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 Gaddddamn genius. Cuz who the f**k actually wants to just eat Kraft Dinner and canned beans? No one, and no one should have to—fresh, nutrient-dense food is so important for everyone and I’m so, so thrilled to give a lil’ back while doing what I LOVE to do. … Can you tell I’m excited? 🌱 Side note: there is a SERIOUS shortage of community gardens / plot availability around here. I contacted every single one of them anywhere nearby looking for a plot (there are quite a few) and every one has a 1-2 year waitlist 😭. The dream? Start my own community garden… But for now if you know of anywhere around Dundas / Hamilton / Waterdown / Ancaster where I can grow stuff, please hit me up. 🌱
