Because we are very busy offering programs, both space and staffing constraints limit our ability to respond to all of the requests that we receive for tours. We have created a number of opportunities for people to learn more about us in a way that does not place too many pressures upon our programs or staff. Please carefully read the following for more information.
For individuals and small groups
We offer monthly tours for individuals and small groups. The next tours of our 1884 Davenport location will be June 10 from 3:30 to 5:00 pm. Please contact Ross Curtner at 416 531 8826 ext.223 or ross [at] cfccanada [dot] ca (subject: tour%20of%201884%20Davenport) (ross)elizabeth [at] cfccanada [dot] ca (@cfccanada.ca) should you have any questions. These tours are free, though we gladly accept donations.
For school groups
We work intensively with a number of schools in our neighborhood in our Sustainable Food Systems Education program in order to offer an in-depth program over the course of a full school year. What this means is that we only have the space and staffing for one tour per month for one-off visits from other school groups. Please contact ross [at] cfccanada [dot] ca (Ross )to schedule a tour. Please get in touch to check availability at least three weeks in advance of the specific tour date you are requesting. There is no set fee, but if a $10 per child fee and/or a school or classroom-based fundraising initiative is possible, this is a welcome way to help us offset costs and support programs.
Other large groups
From time to time we are able to host other requests from large private groups. For these tours, we request a donation of $10 per person, and have a capacity of 20 for our Davenport location, and 35 for our Green Barn. Please contact ross [at] cfccanada [dot] ca (Ross )to schedule a tour. Please get in touch to check availability at least three weeks in advance of the specific tour date you are requesting. For private tours, we ask for a donation of $10 per person. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to connecting with you.
We also offer informal, self-guided open-houses on Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm at The Green Barn.
