Sustainability

  • With experience, food can be grown at home and without the use of pesticides and herbicides, making it safer and healthier while reducing toxins in our soil and water
  • Our own yards and balconies provide the easiest opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint
  • The cost to build and maintain a garden can be minimal, providing low-cost access to fresh food for years to come

Local

  • Growing and eating food brings people together more than any other activity
  • Toronto has the land and resources to be able to produce a significant amount of its food locally
  • Food is healthier and tastes better if harvested when ripe and not transported over long distances

Food Security

  • People should have improved access to healthier foods at a reasonable cost
  • Knowledge of how to grow food, how to eat seasonally and how to preserve food is a key component of any food security strategy
