URBAN FARMING IN TORONTO

REHABILITATING urban lands INTO GROWING SPACES, NEIGHBOURs FEEDING NEIGHBOURs

The Grow Trifecta

At Zawadi Farm, we believe food grown by farmers plays a vital role in our community and has implications for the current food system.

  1. GROW FARMERS

    Develop growers who become land stewards

  2. GROW SPACES

    Develop spaces using rejuvenating agricultural practices focusing on soil health 

  3. GROW MARKETS

    Enabling market spaces that allow equable access to all

 

Beyond price-point and the on-sale signs, past the price drops and coupon offers, we look at food through the lens of nutrient density, and especially for fresh vegetables, we see the gaps in the system. These gaps are significantly large enough to cause concern.

The purpose of our acquiring and utilizing urban growing spaces is to engage in this conversation but with a different mindset.
