The BC Government’s Grow Local program offers funding to BC organizations to increase the ability of British Columbians to grow food locally.
The Grow Local program grants up to $25,000 in funding over two years to 10 communities to support community-led solutions to help British Columbians access and use information on how to grow food.
Applications to the BC Government’s Grow Local Program are now closed.
