The Urban Agriculture Program includes community garden plots, a community greenhouse and community composting. Garden plots are approximately 8 feet by 6 feet and may be rented for $20.00 per growing season with $15.00 refunded after a successful fall clean up. The gardens are organic with no pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers used. Gardeners are encouraged to grow a row of produce to donate to the local food bank. Workshops, work bees and community potluck dinners offer participants an opportunity to increase their knowledge of gardening in a social setting. Gardeners are invited to participate in the community kitchen program as well.
The community greenhouse offers gardeners the opportunity to start seeds in the late winter for transplanting into the plots in the spring. During the winter, the greenhouse also produces seedling sprouts, herbs, and lettuce greens which participants may take home, use in the community kitchen and share with the food bank.
The increasing need for urban food security and SCCC’s focus on food justice prompted the organization to develop Aquaponics 707. Aquaponics is a closed-loop system in which plants and fish are grown together in a mutually beneficial relationship. The system has many benefits: compared to soil-based agriculture, it has significantly lower water usage rates, it provides greater control over conditions, and it is by nature free of any harmful products like pesticides.
The aquaponics project is currently showcased in the main court, providing a source of interest and education readily accessible to the public, with highly visible greenery and fish tanks. The produce includes fish for food, and a variety of herbs and other greens. The fish and plants will be available for purchase by the community at affordable rates, by restaurants as specialty items, and will also be used for programs at the Centre.

FOOD SECURITY VIDEOS
SCCC, with funding from The Resilience Office at the City of Toronto, produced these videos in 2018 that capture what food justice means in our community….
