A different way to experience our Global Roots Garden

We have exciting news for the Urban Agriculture week 2022! Visitors passing by the Global Roots garden can now experience them through a self-guided virtual tour.

From September 12, visitors will learn more about our work and see stunning photos with the help of QR codes.

The tour, presents the stories of our gardeners from diverse backgrounds. It is a fun and innovative way to understand different cultures and their shared love for gardening! The content was prepared by summer student staff Mariana Tomohiro and Olivia Woodhouse.

The Global Roots Program is a multicultural, intergenerational community food garden. It is located at The Stop’s Green Barn and run in partnership with CultureLink Settlement Services.

Our Garden plots are representative of the cultural makeup of our neighbourhood participants: Italian, Tibetan, Filipino, Chinese, Polish, South Asian, and Latin American.   

Every growing season our gardeners grow culturally appropriate food in each of the garden plots and finish off the year with a harvest season potluck in the fall. 

Check out the Global Roots Garden tour here and don’t forget to visit us to experience it in person!
