Congratulations to Assiniboine Credit Union member Urban Eatin’ Gardeners Co-op for being selected as a finalist in the National Co-op Challenge sponsored by the Co-operators Group. There are eight regional prizes of $25,000 to help co-ops develop their services.
Urban Eatin’ transforms underused spaces such as balconies, school grounds and community spaces into beautiful food-producing systems that are environmentally sensitive, sustainable and organic. Assiniboine has supported the development of the worker co-op through our Community Enterprise Development Grant program and we enjoy seeing the community gardens that Urban Eatin’ helps to create through its consultations and workshops.
