Funding Proposal Successful!

Just got off the phone with the Winnipeg Foundation and am thrilled to announce that they have accepted our proposal for expanding Fruit Share!

Funding will be coming via the Community Grants Program with a portion also coming from the Moffat Family Fund and the Mauro Family Fund.  Thank you!

What a thrill to know that others share our vision and plans for harvesting, sharing and enjoying fruit growing throughout the city.

The Fruit Share Advisory Team will be getting together this Monday to discuss our next steps.  Stay tuned as we put our dreams into action.
