The Stop and The New Farm in Creemore have created an innovative program that supports sustainable local farming while providing fresh, healthy, organic food to our community.
Here’s how it works:
- Donors contribute money to the Grow For The Stop fund.
- These donations are used to buy fresh, organic produce from The New Farm, which is harvested weekly and delivered to The Stop.
- The Stop uses this produce in frontline and community kitchen programs.
Grow For The Stop continues to make connections between farmers and urban communities, strengthening rural economies while providing fresh, local, organic food to program participants.
The New Farm held an annual concert event on their farm to raise funds for Grow For The Stop. This concert event has grown over the years, so much so that The New Farm is now able to support more good food organizations, including The Stop, Regent Park Community Food Centre, and food banks in Southern Georgian Bay. This event is now part of a wider program called Farms For Change.
