FoodShare promotes Community Gardens and Urban Agriculture everywhere from city parks to abandoned lots to schoolyards and institutional spaces, where gardeners grow food for their families, build community, beautify neighbourhoods and learn nature’s cycles.
Our mid-size Composting operation produces over 25,000 pounds of the city’s best compost every year, processing scraps from our kitchen and produce programs to feed our gardens. In our Onsite Greenhouse and Demonstration Gardens, we grow hundreds of pounds of organic food for our kitchen and teach children and community members where food comes from, and how easy it is to grow bounties in small spaces.
We also work actively in a number of growing partnerships, supporting hundreds of gardens in the Toronto Community Gardening Network, bringing together urban farmers in the Toronto Urban Growers network, and supporting beehives that produce honey in the city in partnership with the Toronto Beekeepers Cooperative. Working with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) we run the Sunshine Garden and Market, Toronto’s first market garden, and we continue to facilitate the Bendale Market Garden, Toronto’s first school market garden.
