Become a SPONSOR
Sponsors provide a financial contribution that covers the cost of infrastructure (growing systems and germination tables), the tailored matching of a group of entrepreneurs and a local business, and the initial set-up support of a skilled program manager. Sponsors can be businesses, organizations, individuals, or a group of individuals. Sponsors can also provide mentorship to the entrepreneurs, sharing business knowledge and expertise. Contact us to become a sponsor.
Become a HOST
Community spaces - schools, community centres, office buildings and public spaces - can host Growing Futures infrastructure. Hosts provide a space for the growing infrastructure and open their doors to Growing Futures entrepreneurs to harvest their growing systems. Hosts work with the team of entrepreneurs to ensure that the growing systems are well taken care of by following maintenance schedule procedures. All infrastructure remains the property of the Parkdale Food Centre. Contact us to become a host.
Become a BUSINESS PARTNER
Business partners in the food service industry purchase the harvests or value-added products made with harvests, from the Growing Futures entrepreneurs in the quantities made available. Business partners agree to sell or use what they purchase in their own establishment. Business partners may also provide mentorship to the entrepreneurs, sharing business knowledge and experience. Contact us to become a partner.
