Group Description

Our Gardens are in the TTC lands adjacent to 78 Oakvale Avenue, a short walk from Greenwood subway. The TTC mows the grass, supplies water in the spring/summer and we plant and landscape
Originally started by a few neighbours to enrich and reshape an old empty field, our volunteer group has grown, and has a diverse membership, both locally and from afar. We have a growing interest in the concept of ‘square foot gardening’ which we hope to make an outreach project for new immigrants and ‘lock ins’ who have no access to gardens anymore.
Unlike most community gardens, we are not eligible for any assistance from the City of Toronto, and thus look to others in the community to support our efforts.
We always look to local nurseries and other suppliers to assist us in our efforts to improve what is slowly emerging as an urban jewel, and at 40,000 square feet, is definitely one of a kind.
We are particularly looking for such items as compost and mulch, as well as donations of viable trees, plants and shrubs that might otherwise go to compost at the end of the season.
We recently received a small grant to start recreating the historical pear orchard and to start remediation of the ‘badlands’ in our area. Evergreen is supporting our ongoing funding requests.
Now in our 5th year, we are currently checking how our space is working out. It filled up very fast this year. Feel free to contact us if you are looking for a garden space, we still have some.
If you do join our membership please DO NOT use anything other than your real name. Pseudonyms are not acceptable in a community group.

All the best "Grow well and enjoy with us".
