Windsor, ON: The upcoming seventh annual Planting Wellness event is The Allie Sunshine Project’s main fundraiser and their gift to the community. As they continue working to ignite learning and wellness, this non-profit organization’s Planting Wellness Event is designed to distribute free vegetable transplants to the school, backyard, community, and patio gardeners of Windsor Essex. This is their second year to exclusively offer online ordering and curbside pickup. Online reservations and ordering will begin May 17th at thealliesunshineproject.com.
“There are so many ways our gardens, with just a little care and a little effort, give to us and cultivate our well-being. This rejuvenates and heals the individual. It nourishes the family with nutrition, sunlight, fresh air and above all, time together. We teach our children life skills, discipline, cooperation and reverence for our ecosystems. And we connect to our community as we share this gift with others.”, says Jeremy Hayes, Visionary Director of The Allie Sunshine Project, “More importantly, now than ever, the simple but profoundly powerful act of growing plants leads us to reflect on how our lives and our connection to our food, our communities and our environment shape our world. Even in the most trying of times The Planting Wellness plant giveaway is our way of affirming the power of our connection to our gardens and each other.”
The Planting Wellness plant giveaway will take place, like in 2020, with COVID restrictions and adaptations to ensure everyone’s safety. Up-to-date information can be found at thealliesunshineproject.com
The Allie Sunshine Project was born to ignite learning and wellness in the name of educator and wellness pioneer Allison Hayes; a beautiful, generous, loving, caring, giving, woman who was taken too soon by leukemia. The Allie Sunshine Project carries on her legacy by inspiring a network of wellness explorers through creating and participating in projects in our community that nurture self healing and capture learning opportunities for our minds, bodies, and spirits.
