Urban Agriculture

The Stop's Urban Agriculture program includes an 8,000-square-foot garden at Earlscourt Park; a greenhouse, compost demonstration centre, sheltered garden, and the Global Roots Garden at The Green Barn; as well as a community garden at Hillcrest Park.

These sites yield more than 4,000lbs of fresh, organic produce for our programs every year, and engage community members of all ages in learning how to use sustainable methods to grow fresh, local produce year-round.

We also coordinate a garden-sharing program called Yes In My Backyard, and run frequent community gardening workshops.

All workshops are free but registration is required. Contact Mandy at 416-651-7867 ext. 25 or mandy [at] thestop [dot] org. Free childcare provided.
