Gardening season is here and Kashi is encouraging everyone to get their hands dirty, reconnect with real food & celebrate all the little farmers in each of us, through a unique program called Plant it Forward.
Kashi is building and supporting 18 community gardens across Canada by partnering with Evergreen, a not-for-profit organization committed to green cities and a healthy planet. Together they are increasing access to fresh, healthy, locally grown foods for urban communities across the country.
According to Kashi Plant it Forward Survey, less than half of all Canadians (46%) have ever gotten their hands dirty to grow, care for or harvest fresh fruits or vegetables. Even more surprising, one third of Canadians will not visit a farmers market or community garden this year.
