Fruit Share now a member of the Canadian Community Economic Development Network

Fruit Share is happy to announce that we are now a member organization of the Canadian Community Economic Development Network (CCEDNet).  The network is made up of community-based organizations, co-operatives, practitioners, students, researchers, and active citizens from every region of the country who are dedicated to the principles and practices of Community Economic Development (CED).

On top of allowing us to be part of a national movement for inclusive and sustainable communities, membership in CCEDNet brings Fruit Share, and our volunteers, some great opportunities. CCEDNet offers many great workshops on a variety of topics relating to CED (both webinars and in person events), and as volunteers with Fruit Share you are now eligible to register for them at the reduced price which CCEDNet members pay. We encourage all of our volunteers who are interested to check out their Upcoming Events page to see what’s coming up that you might be interested. Go ahead and register under Fruit Share’s name for any workshops/events that interest you. We only ask that you let us know what you’re taking and that you be willing to share your new skills and knowledge if it would benefit Fruit Share.

Here are few upcoming events/learning opportunities that we encourage you to check out:
