About the project Edit

Welcome to Toronto Urban Growers. We are a Toronto-area collective of individuals pursuing urban agriculture in the GTA, including urban farmers and their supporters. We aim to shape policy, develop plans, and share ideas about growing food within the city and making it available to its citizens. We welcome your thoughts and your input.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Toronto Urban Growers brings together different urban agriculture networks to promote local food consumption and to improve the local landscape.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Urban agriculture helps teach citizens about food production - something we are increasingly losing touch with. It also has environmental benefits for urban areas as plants help reduce the urban heat island effect and can increase the air quality.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

Urban agriculture can be implemented in many different cities as long as the crops chosen are compatible with the climate.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

Urban agriculture has been gaining momentum in North America. Toronto Urban Growers offers a hub for people to learn and share their practices.

What is the business model of this project? Edit
