Want to raise money to end hunger in your community?
Host a dinner, run a race, ride your bike or give up coffee for a month – fundraising doesn’t have to be complicated.

Another way you can make an impact is by sharing one of Planted’s blog posts, videos, pages, etc. by email, on Facebook, or Twitter. Start right now by sharing this cute, short animated video on food security.

    Hello Really like what you are doing at first glance. As I cruise your website I am looking for the people and group of people who are the visionaries and sustainers of this project . .. not apparent?

    Would love to learn more about that.

      Hi, I’m not sure if one of my colleagues ever got back to you in a timely manner regarding your question from February. The bios of the “visionaries and sustainers” at Planted can be found at the following link: https://plantednetwork.ca/our-team/ although there are no photos uploaded at this time (we’ve had to scale down our website and prioritise moving certain things).

      So we’re a small team, of only 3 people, working part time to champion our own movers and shakers, particularly in the Vancouver food scene, in particular those who work with food and community. We also offer regular training, meetings, seminars to try to develop a semblance of a community around practice and conversation connecting groups who are concerned with food programming and community building.

      I love the look of your website at Newscoopy and will be having a deeper read as soon as possible.
