My World My Garden - Expanding Support

Warren's Wall - September 2013

We are so excited and enthusiastic about the My World My Garden program. The My World My Garden program has proven to be very successful in both Vancouver and Bergnek this year. Each of the Vertical Food Garden Walls have been able to produce enough fresh veggies for 150 families each week during the growing season.

In Bergnek, we are back into spring and the planting cycle to move the wall from it’s winter state back to full food production. We are looking forward to another great year and in fact, are hoping to increase the number of walls in Bergnek to a total of 6 walls by the end of 2015 that will have the capacity to feed 900 families in total. That capacity would provide for immediate needs as well as storing food for winter use.

In Vancouver, at the Ray-Cam Cooperative Centre, we have had a fantastic growing season and the wall provided fresh veggies for over 150 families each week and we are now preparing winter veggies for the wall and preparing the wall for winter in general.

Here’s where we need your help: Next steps are for us to increase capacity in the Bergnek Community as well as a adding a new site in Phoenix, Arizona to support the local community in West Phoenix and to continue supporting the Vancovuer, Canada Vertical Food Garden Wall.

Can you make a donation today and perhaps make it a recurring donation? The women and children at the Ray-Cam Cooperative Centre in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and Bergnek are grateful for all of the support you have given them.

Thank you for your continued support of the women and children of the Ray-Cam Cooperative Centre and Bergnek Communities and the My Arms Wide Open programs.
