The Dutch Garden
We grow food at the Dutch Heritage Villa located at 480 Elliot Avenue, with garden space generously donated by this senior’s centre. The head gardener organizes seeds and seedlings (donated by local farms and seed savers), plants crops in succession to ensure harvest throughout the season, and engages volunteers to help maintain good production through weeding, watering, and careful cultivation.
Our gardens produce an abundance of vegetables while providing an opportunity for community members to engage in thoughtful and meaningful work that builds community and changes lives. Our locally grown vegetables are sold at the Community Harvest Market.
