Lerners congratulates Urban Roots London named a finalist in the community impact category
The annual Pillar Community Innovation Awards celebrations are coming up on November 20, 2019. Lerners congratulates Urban Roots London which has been named a finalist in the community impact category for the PCIAs this year. Lerners has been a proud supporter of Urban Roots London as a season sponsor and sponsor of the Urban Roots annual harvest dinner since the organization’s founding in 2017. Now in its third season, Urban Roots has produced tens of thousands of food using unused urban spaces within the City of London and sustainable, bio-intensive, cyclical planting and harvesting practices and primarily volunteer labour and administration. Urban Roots has also had a significant and growing impact in the education of London and area youth through on farm field trips in partnership with the Thames Valley District School Board and London Christian Elementary School, London Christian Secondary School, and Growing Chefs Ontario. Lerners is proud to have our very own Jacob Damstra, an associate lawyer practising litigation and dispute resolution with a focus on environmental and public interest issues, as a member of the Board of Directors for Urban Roots. We wish Urban Roots the best of luck at the Pillar Community Innovation Awards coming up this month, and also want to congratulate the other finalists named in all of the categories at the PCIAs this year and wish each of those organizations and individuals luck this year and in all of their future endeavours making our community a better place.
