Grow Calgary is a non-profit organization that grows food for the needy. They believe in food access and urban farming. They try and develop urban land, that would otherwise be grass, to grow fresh produce that they harvest for those who struggle to put food on their table.
It is a worthy cause and a great way to #getkidsout. Not only do you learn about planting, transplanting, and harvesting, you learn how a community of volunteers can help spread kindness. If you are in or near Calgary, you should check it out! And if you're looking for an educational field trip that is outside, active, and community-based, this would be the perfect fit.
