Green thumbs are in season at Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport.
Airport staff are marking 20 years of their Harvest Garden, which will grow veggies this season to help fight hunger through Winnipeg Harvest.
Eleven local organizations are teaming up with the Winnipeg Airports Authority in the third annual Grow-A-Row Business Challenge.
“Over the last two decades, WAA has donated approximately 40,000 pounds of fresh produce,” said Gordon Pollard, board president of Winnipeg Harvest.
“These nutritious vegetables help Winnipeg Harvest’s mission of sharing food with hungry families. It is nice to know they have been rooted with us for 20 years in our struggle to fight hunger and feed hope.”
Participating organizations this year include Red River College, Payne Transportation, Manitoba Blue Cross, Pegasus Publications, The Courtyard Marriott, Garden City Shopping Centre, Print Express, Unisource, Winnipeg Free Press, 7-Eleven and Deanne Crothers’ constituency office.
