About Us

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

we strive to grow food security and educate the public on permaculture, organic and urban safe food growing practices throughout the South Etobicoke region and west Toronto regions. We strive to support, connect and create spaces that support vulnerable communities and anyone that wants and needs access to healthy, fresh, and affordable food. While creating healthier communities might have complex situations and processes we simply focus on the growing community “one plant at a time”.

Our Leadership Focus

  • Build community strength by offering free plants and nature education at related events in our neighbourhoods.
  • Facilitate wildlife restoration through wild garden practices and education and park clean-ups.
  • Bring programs and wildlife gardens to schools in our community to introduce youth to sound gardening and environmental practices.
  • Partner with youth, seniors, and local community groups to develop a strong South Etobicoke web of programs, workshops, and information.

Our Gardens

We have a food forest garden with permaculture and organic principles at the Daily Bread Food Bank, located at 191 New Toronto St, Etobicoke, ON M8V 2E7. We also Extend our gardens beyond boudnaries of property and support people growing plants in their own gardens and exchanging platns, seeds and conversations.
