Toronto Community Garden Network
The Toronto Community Garden Network encourages a healthy community gardening movement in the City of Toronto, supporting and linking community gardeners. The TCGN is made up of interested and energetic individuals and organizations committed to greening, organic gardening and to making community gardening an integral part of city life.
Community gardens in Toronto are situated on a range of properties including parks, building rooftops, senior citizens' residences, school board properties, churches, and more.
TCGN events include the eagerly anticipated official kick-off to spring, Seedy Saturday and Sunday, tours, and other get togethers during the summer and at harvest time, funding permitting.
