Whether you are a first-time gardener or veteran grower, you will benefit from the simple, low-cost approach to grow healthy vegetables to feed your family. Join us for a FREE hands-on, two-day weekend workshop where you will be inspired by those who have found that growing their own food is an adventure more simple and joyful than they imagined. Select a weekend in April and join us!

If you have containers on a balcony, a back yard or a small raised bed, this City-of-Toronto funded workshop will teach you the basics of soil health, composting, crop planning and rotation, watering and feeding your garden, and may even inspire you to teach others how to grow their own food too.
