Harvest Hastings is grateful for the support of the CFDC of North & Central Hastings and South Algonquin! With the funding provided, our "New Connections, New Roots" project has been a successful initiative that continues to grow! We created four regional agri-tourism brochures for the vast region of Hastings County that help connect consumers directly with local producers. One thousand copies of each brochure were printed and distributed throughout the region. The brochures are also downloadable from our website. Visitors can connect directly to the Google Maps application to get driving directions and plan their routes for the four regions. We've also had a great response from the distribution of our custom seed packages at our local farmers' markets! Better than a business card and filled with seeds for four different locally-sourced heirloom veggies, these packages encourage people to Get Growing and Connect with Harvest Hastings. We'll be at the Hastings County Plowing Match in August to continue handing out our packages, brochures, and magazines, and help the community grow together!
