Volunteer your lawn or garden to help Squash Hunger!

Food security is more important now than ever. Lake Trail Community Education Society is joining a squash revolution which is spreading across the North Island.

We are looking for volunteers willing to offer up parts of their front or back yards for squash gardens. LTCES is growing the starters and will plant them in your space. Squash are very easy to look after. Your job will be to water them over the summer months… and we are here for support if you have any questions!

The squash harvested in October will support food security in our communities throughout the fall and winter months. All volunteer growers can keep a percentage of the squash grown in their yards.

If you are interested in finding out more about volunteering part of your garden or lawn email info@LTCES.ca with the subject line: ‘Squash Hunger’.

This project is following physical distancing protocols. We will be in touch with you via email and/or phone to arrange access to your yard independently for planning and planting with our own tools. Thank you for your support.
