I am in the planning stages of a gardening program for refugees new to the Hamilton area. The program would teach attendees to grow vegetables in our climate from starting seeds indoors to harvesting/preserving their crops. We would cover gardening techniques from patio/balcony to full size gardens.|
My intent is also to use my garden and small farm (chickens, dairy & beef cows) to help attendees produce their own organic, healthy food to help offset their own food expenses.
We would need the following items to assist in start up:
- Heirloom Seeds
- Access to Apple/Pear Trees
- Seed Starting pots/trays
- Potting Soil
- Large Flower Pots/Planters
- Gardening Tools (trowels, hand spades etc)
- Gardening Gloves (adult/children)
- Canning Jars/Tools
- Translators (depending)
We could also use:
- Laying Hens (older is fine as long as they are still laying)
- Cracked Corn/Chicken Feed
We would like the program to be free to those who need it - and it would be open to anyone interested. This means we have to rely heavily on donations. Any assistance at all is greatly appreciated! The more we can collect, the more people we can help.
Thank you in advance!
