The Garden Collective has always been committed to enhancing food security in Yellowknife. Gardeners are obligated to dedicate 25% of their plot to grow food that is donated to local food security organisations. Gardeners weigh and record all donations. Below is a list of some of the organisations that receive donations:
The list of organisations seeking donations is updated every year, and Site Managers post lists in the garden sheds at each site during the summer.
