EDIBLE GARDEN @ RIVERDALE hub
Stage 3 - Edible Garden
The edible garden is the bread and butter of our rooftop garden project. There are two main goals for the garden. Its primary function is to grow organic vegetables and herbs for The Social Gardener, our local cafe. In doing so, we provide ultra fresh, all organic produce to our loyal customers. By working in conjunction with the Ontario growing season, The Social Gardener maintains relevance and environmental consciousness.
Second, this garden provides an invaluable opportunity for the Riverdale Immigrant Women's Centre. It is offered for women to learn about growing food, with the intention of generating increased food security within our community. The garden also presents a safe space for volunteering, learning and building new friendships.
Stay tuned for photos and updates throughout the season!
