A children's community garden has sprung up in Fredericton to help teach kids how to grow healthy food.
New Brunswick has the third highest prevalence of food insecurity for children, according to a study last month out of the University of Toronto.
Earlier this year, Fredericton resident Tammy McMaster took a food mentorship course. She learned about food insecurity and how to help her own community in changing it. She came up with a plan to help kids help themselves.
"Having kids come to me and say I didn't have something for lunch today or I didn't go to school today because I didn't have a lunch, it's hard, and it's heartbreaking to hear a child say that to you," McMaster said.
With funding from Fredericton's Community Inclusion Network and community sponsors, the children's community garden was born.
