gift-keeps-giving-2Please join Tanya and Ally this Thursday December 1st from 6:30- 8pm for Karma Yoga at the Bobcaygeon Public School. Admission is by donation and all proceeds go towards a Tower Garden for the students at BPS.

Tanya and Ally watched a presentation about the impact of people growing their own food 365 days a year using a Tower Garden and they were moved to tears and wanted to set up a Karma Yoga Class to raise funds so that the Bobcaygeon Public School could have their very own Tower Garden.

One part of the presentation focused on children growing their own food in schools with a Tower Garden. There are many schools (not to mention food banks and homeless shelters, restaurants etc.) that have already incorporated the Tower Gardens into their class rooms – how exciting!!! When implementing the Tower Gardens in schools, it comes with a complete curriculum and it meets many educational requirements such as biology, chemistry, nutrition, nature, food sustainability, eco-friendly, giving, locavore Movement, organic, social responsibility, & food preparation.

A Tower Garden is:

  • An indoor 365 day garden, with no weeds, no bugs, & uses no soil.
  • It’s self-watering and self-lighting. It uses 90% less water than traditional gardening.
  • Saves you about $200+/month on your grocery bill.
  • Tower Gardens are now in many homes, Schools, Universities, Food Banks, Men & Women’s Shelters, restaurants, and even in the Chicago O’Hare airport, just to name a few places.

towerIt just makes sense to have access to fresh non-gmo, organic produce within arm’s reach, especially in Canada where we have such a short growing season. Studies show that when we have access to healthy produce our health benefits.

Please join us on Thursday December 1st from 6:30-8pm at the Bobcaygeon Public School in the auditorium. Please bring a mat, water and your donation for this great cause. All ages and levels welcome. Please share this invite – here is the link.
