Location: 200 Eglinton Avenue West.
Directions: The garden is located on the north-west side of the North Toronto Memorial Centre, behind the building.
Accessibility: Our pathways are made of mulch, making them safe for people with canes. Gardeners using wheelchairs and walkers will find it easy to get around the two plots as there is both pavement and grass.
About our Garden: Our community garden is a dream brought to life by the joint organizing efforts of Seeds of Diversity Canada and the Toronto Green Community in partnership with City of Toronto Parks. It is a delightful garden thriving with heritage vegetables as well as native plants. For urban dwellers, it is a place to garden, learn, share and appreciate nature in the city. The harvest is shared with a variety of community groups and volunteers.
Visits: Our Gardeners meet every Monday and Wednesday, from late spring to early fall, from 5-8pm. This is a work night and we welcome all with an interest in organic gardening methods or who simply want to get their hands dirty to come by.
Programs: Garden tours and garden workshops on organic gardening, heritage seeds, composting, insects, water and various other topics are held throughout the year.
Children's program: The Great Garden Adventure, a children's program is held weekly throughout the summer.
