LifeCycles cultivates community health by connecting people to the food they eat and the land it comes from. We support the region in growing, accessing, and eating local food in ways that foster diversity and enhance our urban environment.
About LIFECYCLES PROJECT SOCIETY
We currently run six action oriented programs:
1) Our Fruit Tree Project harvests and redistributes unwanted backyard fruit. Each year we harvest tens of thousands of fruit and redistribute it in the community. We also work to care for the urban orchard.
2) Our Growing Schools program supports school gardens that work. We help educators transform classroom learning and take it outside.
3) Our Farm Gleaning program harvests thousands of pounds of surplus produce from local farms and distributes it to neighborhood based food hubs.
4) Our Community Food program supports social housing providers and community programs, integrating gardens, food and health promotion into people's everyday lives.
5) Our Welland Community Orchard is a 2/3 acre public park where we host many educational events while caring for over 150 unique, regionally adapted fruit tree varietals.
6) Our Seed Library supports public libraries in starting and maintaining community seed collections. Our Victoria Seed Library shares seed and learning events freely with hundreds of people each year.
