In 2021, Lacasse Fine Wood Products came to us with a generous offer: Karen Lacasse admired our work and wanted to support the magic of bringing young children their first experience of growing their own food.

She offered to match donations for the rest of 2021 and thanks to this support, we were able to build raised garden beds at three daycare centres in 2022 and our staff provided gardening experiences for approximately 100 children.

In 2023, we built garden beds at three more childcare centres and doubled the number of children who learned how to start seeds and plant, care for, and eat veggies they grew themselves.
