Great Things Are Growing

In 2019 the Churchill Northern Studies Centre received a Nutrients for Life Learning Grant to help spread the knowledge of their “Rocket Greens” program to schools in the Polar Bear capital of the world! They have now grown over 40,000 "Rocket Greens" providing community members, restaurants, and local grocery stores with subarctic greens. The ability to grow and provide nutritious greens for their community is truly an amazing story that needs to be shared.

As the school year wraps up, the staff at Nutrients for Life could never have imagined it would end like this. The past few months have been challenging and filled with so much uncertainty.

Great Canadian Giving Challenge

Support us through these challenging times. Help us win $20,000.

Your support will help more Canadian students learn how to garden. School gardens help educate about food production, food and water security and what it takes to feed the world from the soil up!

Earth Day Seed Giveaway

To celebrate Earth Day, we are mailing packages of bean seeds to families. This is an opportune time to spend some quality time outside, with your hands in the soil, planting and growing with your family! Gardening has many positive benefits, so give it try this year!
