Who is Urban Eatin’?
Urban Eatin’ is a small group of gardeners committed to using organic and holistic techniques to build and maintain vegetable and herb gardens for Winnipeg’s private residences and public facilities. We envision a more just, sustainable food system, where people in urban spaces can work towards localizing food production, lessening
our ecological footprint, working cooperatively, building community
We have received funds from the National Co-op Challenge to put towards building food security and edible gardening initiatives in four Winnipeg areas throughout 2015… and one of these is the Chalmers neighbourhood of Elmwood!
