FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – NEAT (Northern Environmental Action Team) has started a gofundme page in hopes of raising enough funds to go to Cleveland for the American Community Gardening Association’s National Conference. They have been invited to present, but don’t currently have the money in the budget to go.
“We have developed a food security program called Food Secure Kids that has worked with more than 1000 K-6 students since its inception. These students learn about their food system, where food comes from, what you need to grow it and how to eat healthy meals by eating a rainbow. And they all get to plant a garden with their class to reinforce what they’re learning.”
The goal is to send 2 people to Cleveland but they need funds to feed and get them there.
“Being able to attend this conference is a big goal for us and would be a fantastic opportunity to spread the word about this program. We would be eternally grateful for the helping hand!”
