Urban Agriculture Program
The Urban Agriculture Program includes community garden plots, a community greenhouse and community composting. Garden plots are approximately 8 feet by 6 feet and may be rented for $20.00 per growing season with $15.00 refunded after a successful fall clean up. The gardens are organic with no pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers used. Gardeners are encouraged to grow a row of produce to donate to the local food bank. Workshops, work bees and community potluck dinners offer participants an opportunity to increase their knowledge of gardening in a social setting. Gardeners are invited to participate in the community kitchen program as well.
The community greenhouse offers gardeners the opportunity to start seeds in the late winter for transplanting into the plots in the spring. During the winter, the greenhouse also produces seedling sprouts, herbs, and lettuce greens which participants may take home, use in the community kitchen and share with the food bank.
For information on how to volunteer or get involved, please call 416-392-0335.
Mondays and Thursdays from 12:00p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
One component of the Food for Thought initiative is a community kitchen style program that is open to community members to shop, cook and share food together in a comfortable and educational setting. Participants of the program learn recipes from all over the world, learn nutritional components of foods, and discover healthy and affordable shopping alternatives. Members will also take home some of the food produced in the class. The program also includes topics such as food handling, kitchen safety, and cooking techniques. The participants are also involved with the Urban Agriculture Program where organic produce is grown in the greenhouse and the community garden for use in the community kitchen.
For more information, please contact 416-392-0335.

The Partners for Access and Identification (PAID) project opens doors and breaks down barriers for individuals who do not have a fixed or permanent address. We begin by helping individuals obtain vital identification such as:
- Ontario photo health card
- Canadian birth certificate
- Record of landing
We also provide guidance and awareness regarding other programs that are available, including community-based support services.
