Seed to Soil: Cultivating Green Outdoor Spaces. End of Year Fundraiser

3“It’s not just a veggie garden – it never was. Our prime focus has always been about to eliminating social barriers to inclusion that prevent individuals, particularly youth, from reaching their potential and maximizing their community involvement.” Lina Chaker, Together we Flourish, Rose City Islamic Centre.

A seed holds the future. At Faith & The Common Good (FCG) we’re helping to build a healthy, vibrant one. Faith groups across out networks recognize the important role they can play in planting seeds and nurturing gardens. Whether it is to create pollinator habitat and feed pollinators, or to start a community garden to feed people, faith communities often have land in which to plant and our networks tell us they want to cultivate more of these outdoor sacred spaces.That’s why, as the year draws to a close, we’re looking ahead to 2016 with our SEED TO SOIL campaign. We invite you to join us in supporting our fellow faith groups in planting a garden.

10 faith groups will receive $300 each to set up a garden of their choice: habitat for native pollinators or a vegetable garden. The faith group will use the money to buy seeds and plants and gardening equipment.

Throughout the month of December, help us reach our goal of $3000 towards our SEED TO SOIL CAMPAIGN.

 “The goodness that has come into our community through this journey is not limited to the projects alone; it is counted most dearly in what it has happened in our hearts and minds. We have grown in relationship to one another, to the wider communities in our city and indeed to the whole world.” Rev. Dr. Karen Dimock, Former Minister. Morningside-High Park Presbyterian Church, Toronto, Ontario.
