WOMEN PARTICIPANTS / VOLUNTEERS

Wanted: Harvest sharers / home visitors
Food project: Taz Grout's Hot Dirt (community garden project)
Location: Kinmount, Ontario (2.5 hours from Toronto)
Type: volunteer, twice a year

Hi good women!

We are looking for people who identify as women who want to build community, drive to our farm in Kinmount, enjoy a pot luck and then drive away & share our harvest with an isolated person of your choice.

Must have access to a car. Must know an isolated person. Must take pic of you sharing a small bunch of fruit / veg / herbs & post your visit on our TBD social media page. (Posting pics is part of the grant requirements).

To volunteer, you must make your way to the farm TWICE a year for the potlucks & distribution.

Background:

I had the idea of building a tiny community by calling on women volunteers to help share our produce. Why only women? Because the grant is all about women helping women.

“Taz's Grout's Hot Dirt.” Why the name? Taz Grout is the only child of Pam Grout, the world-renowned author. Taz passed, and her mother began a foundation aimed at funding people who are doing a small part to help the planet. Our family bought an abandoned farm with nothing on it but sumac and south slope. It gets hot! I applied, called my project Taz Grout's Hot Dirt, and got the grant.

This project is new & evolving — any and all ideas on how to get more grants to keep the project moving forward or evolve the project are welcome.

Non-denomational.
