You can grow food -- no matter where you live, says Spaces2Grow

This spring, a new website aims to revolutionize Canadians' connection to food

GUELPH, ON, March 24, 2015 /CNW/ - No space? Shady garden? Brown thumb? Those aren't barriers to growing food, according to The newly launched website was born from the belief that all Canadians can produce food — and it offers an array of resources to help everyone become part of a growing movement.

"If you've got a wall, a balcony, a sunny window or only room for a small indoor aquarium, we can help you get growing," says spokesperson Neil Lachapelle.

The site's extensive free information and community social spaces complement the members-only tools that guide would-be growers through each step as they create food production spaces, choose crops suited to their conditions and produce their harvest.

As well as all the standard fruit, vegetables and herbs, Spaces2Grow helps Canadians cultivate often-overlooked crops such as edible flowers and native plants. It even covers micro-livestock: fish, poultry, bees, goats and more.

According to Lachapelle, growing food creates benefits beyond cheaper, fresher, tastier meals. Studies show that gardening creates a closer connection to food and nature, boosts physical and mental health and sustains the planet we depend on.

"Spaces2Grow is not just about growing food," he explains. "It's about growing heads, hearts and health as well. We want to help more Canadians enjoy those benefits, no matter where they live or how much experience they have."

Spaces2Grow offers a free 21-day trial of its planning and planting tools, including personal planning guidance, customized crop calendars and week-by-week To-do lists. Membership is currently just $15/year.
