FoodShare supports Community Gardens and Urban Agriculture across Toronto. Gardeners grow food for their families, build community, and beautify neighbourhoods and we teach children and community members how easy it is to grow bounties in small spaces. Every year, our mid-scale Composting operation processes food scraps to produce over 10,000 kilograms of Toronto’s best compost to feed our gardens and in partnership with the Toronto Beekeepers Cooperative, 1,900 tons of local City honey is harvested. We grow hundreds of pounds of organic food in our onsite Greenhouse and Demonstration Garden, at the Sunshine Market and Garden at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), and facilitate School Grown gardens in partnership with the Toronto District School Board. We also work in partnership with over 70 institutions, community-based organizations and community groups to bring to life food growing projects all over the city.
So many of us want to engage with each other as we explore our personal and collective roles in food security, food systems, and food issues. FoodShare Talks is a book club and discussion series that promotes open dialogue to sink our teeth into some of the leading ideas driving our food movement. Meetings are held seasonally following a book club inspired discussion group format to share questions, reflections, and comments.More Details »
