What began as a project to collect surplus fruit going to waste in Richmond, BC and distribute it to the poor has grown to an inspiring community movement that helps the poor and aids food security. Started by a small group of determined volunteers, the Richmond Fruit Tree Sharing Project has grown to include a community garden and greenhouse on some agricultural land that wasn't being used. After its inception by a small group of grandmothers, it wasn't long before the success of this project expanded to include other members in the community, including an agrologist and an elementary school teacher and his class. The Terra Nova School Yard project sees elementary school students working in this community garden and learning about nature, food and food security as well as nurturing the values of community service in these young citizens of the future.
