Thanks to the Nutrition North Funding, Earth Connections has distributed 230 Garden Towers to Stony Rapids, Black Lake, and Uranium City between September 2017 and the spring of 2020. At the outset of this project, The National Aboriginal Diabetes Association printed an article on Northern Gardens in their September 2017 newsletter. Click here to read the newsletter. An article was also published in the fall 2017 edition of NOSH, a newsletter published by the Food & Culinary network of Dietitians of Canada. In the spring of 2019, we provided Stony Rapids with 6 Raised Beds and 8 Cold Frames for use at their newly built Women and Children’s Crisis Centre. We also facilitated the creation of a therapy garden, which included a barrel oven rocket stove cob workshop at Stony Rapids School. This was capped off with a pizza party for students and teachers! Several articles were published about the Therapy Garden, including one in Eagle Feather News. Earth Connections ran a January 2020 Microgreen Workshop in Stony Rapids and another in Uranium City, providing the communities with microgreen growing kits. In February, we piloted a School Snack Program at Uranium City School. (This program was paused due to Covid-19, but will hopefully be re-started in the near future). Over the course of the spring of 2020 Stony Rapids, Black Lake, and Uranium City purchased over 110 individual-sized raised beds and cold frames along with over 170 seed packs for families in these communities, funded through Nutrition North.
