Learning, Inspiring and Growing Together to Feed Our Community!
The Yard Garden Harvest Program is a community food security project of Little Mountain Neighbourhood House. We are a group of dedicated volunteers and one coordinator who grow food in five of our neighbours' yards to provide local, community-grown produce to Little Mountain Neighbourhood Houses Food Distribution Program. The Yard Garden Harvest Project is rooted in deepening connections by engaging with landowners and volunteers while growing food in a way that benefits the soil, the pollinators, and our community!
To create a connected and empowered neighbourhood by growing and providing fresh, nutritious food to those who face food insecurity in our community.
We Offer Volunteers:
Short garden shifts that include tasks such as planting, weeding, pruning, harvesting and watering produce etc. Garden shifts are around 2 - 3 hours long and are a great way to meet and connect with new people!
Long-term leadership roles that can be hands-on in the garden or remote. Leadership roles are a great way to gain meaningful work experience that will challenge you and give you key skills that can be applied to leadership positions in the future.

Workshop, Volunteer and community events that will include games, prizes and updates about the impact of the project
