The City of Toronto and Toronto Urban Growers are collaborating on the Community Engagement and Entrepreneurial Development (CEED) project to use Hydro Corridors to grow fruit and vegetable crops. Two sites have been selected for this pilot initiative and Flemingdon Park is one of these sites.
Flemingdon Community Farm is a community-owned and community-developed initiative. To accurately capture the needs and wishes of the Flemingdon Park community, consultations were held at the Flemingdon Health Centre in the fall and winter of 2015-2016, with a final project reveal in March 2016.
It has taken 5 years to secure the permits, approvals and funding necessary to access the site and launch the project. We are grateful for the support we have received and are in the process of securing permission for the infrastructure necessary to operate the Farm. We will be transforming an underutilized grass area into a vibrant community space growing healthy food!
