SIX NATIONS – Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) and Our Sustenance Greenhouse and Farmer’s Market are excited to announce the launch of a new website.
Our Sustenance offers various programming throughout the year including a weekly Farmers Market, monthly Good Food Box, daily Greenhouse operation and herbal apothecary, as well as a range of workshops and educational series. The website is full of information and tips to help individuals and families grow a garden, preserve food, and be healthy physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
The Our Sustenance program began in 2011 as a result of information gathered from the community and captured in the Six Nations Community Plan, with the intention to bring reasonably priced, and locally grown food into the community. From 2011 to 2015, the program was administered by the Economic Development Department of Six Nations Council. Our Sustenance gained momentum with the community during those years and now operates as a permanent operation under Six Nations Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC).
In May 2015, Our Sustenance was given a forever home, access to more stable funding and now a brand-new shinny website.
“The stability and benefit of being part of the Development Corporation came in unexpected and wonderful ways. We have a bigger voice in the community, as well as departments within the corporation that promote and share with us, as well as the community,” said Adrianne Lickers, Manager of Our Sustenance.
