Canada: Planting the Seeds of Community Change

The project will train 10 low income psychiatric survivors to document and share their stories of growing and eating healthy food via urban agriculture work opportunities in local community gardens. The project supports an ongoing community collaboration to create a food security model and economic development tool relevant to the low income community of west end Toronto/ Canada. Project participants will: learn new skills to produce and share online stories (in video form), mentor the video production efforts of others and document the personal discoveries / benefits of their experience.
