Backyard Harvest

Hamilton, Hamilton

Description

In 1996, I began a journey into agriculture. Leaving suburban Burlington for experience on rural farms was a step taken for personal education and for positive mental health. There was always a seed of intention, however, to bring what I had learned back into the city.
Today, we grow produce in 11 backyards in the Strathcona, Kirkendall and North End neighbourhoods. We also farm an additional third of an acre at the Sisters of St. Joseph Convent just beyond Cootes Paradise. We are supported in this work by an incredible group of staff and volunteers.
We continue to grow produce for our community-supported agriculture project. Forty households are now food share members! Every Tuesday through the growing season, our sharemembers pick up their fresh share of produce from our Strathcona backyard.
Backyard Harvest brings us joy. Our work in the neighbourhood plots brings us into close contact with so many of our neighbours, increasing our feeling of belonging to this place and to each other. Growing fresh healthy food in this place is vital work that feeds us physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Barsa Kelly GARDENS Pod

Toronto, Ward 6

Area :
6 m2

Description

The Barsa Kelly GARDENS Pod is one of ten sites and part of The GARDENS Community Pod Project.The Pod Project is similar to the concept of a community garden except this garden model tends to be smaller mobile raised beds making it simple to locate throughout the community. These garden pods are set up and cared for by the Pod Planter Providers (residential or institutional/business pods volunteers) where a portion of harvest is given back to the community. The Pod Project has partnered with organizations such as the local library, children's centres, a community health centre, a college, small businesses and local residents. In 2017, we collectively produced nearly 200 kg. A portion of the produce grown is given back to the community, supporting the local food bank and other food-related programs in South Etobicoke.The Barsa Kelly garden is located on a housing co operative property and open to those living in the Lakeshore Village community.

Bell Manor Garden

Toronto, Ward 5

Description

About our Garden: The Stonegate Community Health Centre supports a local community garden in Bell Manor Park. The community garden which is part of the health centre's Food Access Program addresses the following :

The lack of space for growing food in this lower income neighbourhood where most residents live in apartments.
An alterative food source for gardeners.
Access to social interaction and engagement in community activities.
Enables gardeners to connect with the many other cultural and family associations of growing food.

Bell Manor Community Garden gives local residents the chance to work their own small plot of land and grow their own fruits, herbs, vegetables and flowers, in a safe and secure community setting. Gardeners keep their plots from year to year, but vacancies do come up. At present the garden holds close to 50 community gardeners.

Directions: This community Garden is just a short walk away from the The Stonegate Community Health Centre, at 150 Berry Rd. The closest intersection is Parklawn and Berry Road (just north of the Queensway). Bell Manor Park, Bayside Lane in Etobicoke.

Black Creek Community Farm

Toronto, Ward 8

Features

Description

Mission

To serve and enrich our community through a thriving farm, healthy food, hands-on training and learning experiences. To inspire the next generation by providing leadership in food justice, and supporting diverse natural and social ecosystems.

Who we are

Black Creek Community Farm (BCCF) founded by Everdale Environmental Learning Centre, Food Share and African Food Basket has operated as a start-up focused on improving food security, reducing social isolation, and improving employment and education outcomes, since its inception in 2012. Key stakeholders and partnerships are Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, the current landholder for the site and partner in land stewardship and educational programming; FoodShare, a core project partner supporting educational initiatives, programming and promotions; the Jane Finch Community and Family Centre supporting outreach and program offering; and Toronto Beekeepers Cooperative, a supporter of beekeeping on site and education around pollinator habitat.

About the farm

The site houses certified organic vegetable fields, a forest trail and food forest, 4-season greenhouses, an outdoor classroom, pavilion and bake oven, as well as a mushroom garden, chickens and beehives. Restoration and conservation activities are in progress to affect roughly 15,000 square metre u-shaped woodland which surrounds the farm fields on the west side along a Toronto street (Jane St), along the south end bordering a vibrant community housing development, and up the east side at the top of a ravine which descends to the Black Creek and separates BCCF from the Black Creek Pioneer Village and York University. The western and southern portions of the woodland are home to our Food Forest that includes edible perennials and companion species; while the eastern section is being restored with the addition of species native to Ontario to support pollinators and other wildlife. The woodland space includes established trees including sugar maple, red pine, birch, oak, and decades old cherry crab apple, apple and ash trees. Lastly, this unique portion of urban forest also include a variety of landscapes and natural vegetation including both deciduous and evergreen forest, grassy meadows and low lying wet areas dominated by plants such as dogwood, and a ravine ecosystem that runs along the Black Creek.

Carrville Community Garden

Vaughan, York

Area :
1.5 m2

Description

Our 1.5 acre garden was started in 2001, on the grounds of the Toronto Waldorf School. The garden is run as a collective and we plan, work and harvest together rather than in individual plots. We use Biodynamic methods of growing and we are economically self sustainable and donate to the Toronto Waldorf Children’s Garden program. We grow food crops and flowers and keep egg laying hens and have bee hives on the property.

Members harvest what is in proportion to how much time and input they have spent in the overall work of the community garden. As we are becoming more and more self organized, there are many learning opportunities for members who want to take on different levels of responsibility. We welcome new members and volunteers and are happy to share information.

Directions: in the Town of Vaughan on the east side of Bathurst St. and just south of Rutherford Rd./Carrville R. Enter through Toronto Waldorf School and continue on the road to the back

Chalkfarm Community Garden

Description

Chalkfarm Neighbourhood Centre (located in Chalkfarm Community Centre beside 180 Chalkfarm) is contributing to the implementation of the resiliency framework in their community programs.

This garden was started in 1990, on private residential land, with the Chalkfarm Summer Gardening and Environmental Programme. There are two equally sized gardens, with approximately 5 plots in each.

There are some large plots as well as other areas available that we would like to be more for communal use.

A few of the plots belong to individuals and these parts of our garden have been thriving on their own for years. Many of our residents have their own select plots and have done a great job maintaining these individual areas.

It is our dream to make the garden more cohesive and open to all of the members of our community. and to be complete with paths, sitting areas, and a more open concept overall. We hope it will one day be a place for everyone in the community to enjoy and be proud of.

We are very pleased with the wide variety of native and exotic plants species and vegetables that our gardeners grow, and it is a reflection of how very rich in culture we are.

Courtland Mews Community Garden

Toronto, Ward 43

Description

We’re a non-profit social housing provider. We're launching a community garden to community members to grow their own vegetables in order to improve our local food self reliance. Since we have many residents with physical disabilities, we must make the project “accessible” to residents who use mobility devices.

Therefore we opted for container gardening and we’re constructing custom 4’ x 16’ platforms 32” high on which we will place the aeration type root pruning containers so they are accessible to our residents. We were able to obtain a drip irrigation system with integrated fertilizer injection from one of our corporate sponsors.

We're also converting 55 gallon barrels into aeration type containers, and will continually add to our capacity. Were growing vegetables and a pollinator garden. We'll have community composting program, and hydroponics demonstration system.

Long term we plan to host workshops, add fruit trees, make cider and preserves and hope to launch a community kitchen with pressure canning capabilities

Area :

Description

I’m a farmer living in Toronto and growing all kinds of certified organic vegetables on a super-small scale on an old farm in Brampton. From mid-June through October I bring the harvest back to Toronto for CSA members, with both backyard pickup and home delivery options to the High Park North, Roncesvalles and Junction neighbourhoods. The farm is leased from the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. Although now surrounded by townhouses, it was once one of many farms situated on some of the best agricultural land in Southern Ontario. I grow over 30 different vegetables, fruits, and herbs - and I have been farming for over 10 years.

Dufferin Grove Community Garden

Toronto, Ward 18

Description

The Dufferin Grove Community Gardens were started in 1993. Located in a Beautiful City park, the several native species gardens, flower beds, and the three communal vegetable gardens are maintained and harvested by an open group of volunteers. Their aim with the vegetable gardens is to experiment with a variety of new plants each year, provide fresh produce for the park´s community food programs, and demonstrate organic gardening to the general public. Coordinated by Recreation staff everyone works together to decide what to plant and how to organize the gardens. Gardeners can pool their knowledge and divide the work in a way that best suits their lives.

Directions: This Community Garden is just south of the main building. The Dufferin Grove Park is just south of Bloor St. on the east side of Dufferin St.

The trees are adopted by the community (many of them children and youth).

Fort York Community Garden

Toronto, Ward 19

Description

Established in April 2008 we are located on the grounds of Historic Fort York at Bathurst and Fleet Streets. We have 1,200 square feet of raised beds that are filled with more than 70 varieties of vegetables, herbs and flowers grown in individual, group and communal plots. In May 2010, a new 512 square foot Historical Kitchen Garden was created, built and planted and the two gardens now greatly add to the green space animation of Fort York, as well provide another outdoor gathering space for the local residents of the Niagara Neighborhood. Over the years, gardeners have enjoyed weekly garden programming, field trips, and the celebration of harvest by sharing the bounty of fresh vegetables and herbs through pot-luck dinners and season-end festivals.

Visits: Feel free to stop by the garden during open hours during Fort York open hours www.fortyork.ca . Please keep in mind that Fort York is a National Historic Site museum and entrance fees are required to enter any of the buildings. The public is invited to respectfully walk through the site, and to visit the community garden

Directions: On foot, you can access the garden from Bathurst St and Front St. Walk on the west side of Bathurst heading south across the bridge. Look for the garden on the north side of the Fort walls. Take the footbridge on your right into the Fort York, and head around the walls to the right to get to the garden. Or, enter the site from the main entrance on the west, and walk all the way through the site on the main path; the garden is a hard left once you pass through the east gate. By car, enter Garrison Road off of Fleet St or Fort York Blvd where there is free parking.

Accessibility: The main pathways at Fort York are paved, but the garden site is well maintained grass, with fairly flat terrain. The garden plots are all 1’ raised beds. We hope to build a higher raised bed in 2009 for those with mobility issues. Washrooms are accessible, though not always open.

Features

Description

LAMP CHC GARDENS Pod is one of ten sites and part of the GARDENS Community Pod Project. The Pod Project is similar to the concept of a community garden except this garden model tends to be smaller mobile raised beds making it simple to locate throughout the community. These garden pods are set up and cared for by the Pod Planter Providers (residential or institutional/business pods volunteers) where a portion of harvest is given back to the community. The GARDENS Pod Project has partnered organizations such as the local library, children's centres, a community health centre, a college, small businesses and local residents. In 2017, we collectively produced nearly 200 kg. A portion of the produce grown is given back to the community, supporting the local food bank and other food-related programs in South Etobicoke.

Description

This one acre community garden is made up of both communal and individual plots. Currently there are nine plots growing vegetables and herbs, and six growing native plants and shrubs. There are also ten fruit trees, with more planned. A native garlic patch Is also in the works.

Apart from ‘greening’ our urban landscape, one goal is to promote the “Square Foot” gardening Concept, a type of bio-intensive growing that allows any gardener to grow a lot of food in a small space – usually 8’x4’. This technique can be adapted for any environment, even parking lots!

Accessibility: This garden is fully accessible to people using wheelchairs, walkers and canes.

Directions: Second block south of Danforth, west off Greenwood Ave.

The Growing to Give Community Garden

Vaughan, York

Description

In 2011, the City of Vaughan partnered with Seeds For Change and York Region Food Network on a two-year community garden pilot project at Vaughan Fire and Rescue Service Station #7-1, 835 Clark Ave. W., Vaughan, ON. The initial idea for a community garden came from Jacob Dabit, a Vaughan firefighter who worked at Fire Station #7-1.

For several years now, the ‘Growing to Give’ project has been a true community garden success, providing residents with the opportunity to grow vegetables in a community setting, and gain hands-on education about gardening and cooking their own food. The garden volunteers have generously donated portions of their harvest to community organizations and individuals in need. In 2013, the garden volunteers donated over 100 kilograms of organic produce!
