The project is called "The HONEY Garden". HONEY stands for Helping Our Neighbours Eat Yearly. The EarthKeepers are going to partner up with the Caring and Sharing Food Bank. The EarthKeepers youth are going to volunteer their time to turn a field into a garden. They are going to plant and maintain this garden and then cultivate it when it is ready. All of the produce that comes from the HONEY garden will then be donated to the Caring and Sharing Food bank. This will allow the youth of the community be directly involved with many functions of the community. They will learn about the environment and agriculture, about working with other community members and organizations, and about how hard work and dedication can have a positive impact on others in need.

The HONEY Garden is going to be a project that gives back to everybody in the community!
