The Learning Enrichment Foundation is in the running for a big grant from the Aviva Community Fund. If you vote for their project,they stand a chance of winning the money they need to start an indoor farmers’ market in Mount Dennis.
The primary campus of the LEF is off Black Creek Drive. They offer job training, language education, newcomers’ services, and other programs for adults and youth, in a big, attractive building in an odd, industrial part of town.
On Thursdays, LEF has a market that sells fresh local food to a small number of customers. They’d like to grow the market by providing a dedicated staff member, children’s activities, and support and education for the vendors.
You can vote for the market here.
