Nova Scotia’s food insecurity rate is higher than anywhere else in the province. With 87% of the province’s food coming through export, equitable access to healthy and nutritious diets is a pressing issue that is aggravated by the severe winters that Nova Scotia is prone to. Sow and Share Squad aims to educate youths in alternate forms of growing foods such as hydroponics, share with them the hydroponics kits our team has designed, and empower them to sow their foods. Hydroponics uses water and nutrients for plant growth and occupies less space, which is why it is perfect for university-going students living in a small apartment. We’re hoping that the youths will be as excited as us about growing food on their own and share the knowledge on hydroponics as well as the food they have grown with their friends and families.
