People's Roots: Growing Food to Include

Growing GarlicPeople’s Roots, a program of Salt Spring Island Community Services, serves the island with food security initiatives, and is integrated with other community services including the Food Bank, Mental health Services and Family Place.

People’s Roots grows food on a 1/2 acre plot, organizes food skills workshops, provides employment and helps people access healthy, local and seasonal food.

Working towards a sustainable organization for farm production and for developing interactive initiatives with the community, People’s Roots looks forward to developing a model for food security, economic stimulus and employment, food security and local food production.
