Best Community Project

Gold Winner Hope Blooms

Silver Winner Common Roots Urban Farm

Bronze Winner Dartmouth Community Food Centre

Craig Cain has been with Hope Blooms since he was eight years old. Now, he’s 20 and works full-time for the organization while studying for his red seal in cooking. (A passion he discovered via Hope Blooms.) As a community project, Hope Blooms is a place to “discover new things about yourself, and then learn from the things you love to do,” says Cain. And things keep growing. The organization recently broke ground on its new location, a product of the “dedication, love and support from the community,” which he says “has been just amazing.”
