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 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. Fish and plants are available for purchase by the community at affordable rates, by restaurants as specialty items, and used for programs at the Centre.

A collaboration between Scadding Court Community Centre and PACE Independent Living.
FoodFit is a program developed and funded by Community Food Centres Canada, operating out of Scadding Court Community Centre.
FoodFit is a free cooking program available to people of all ability levels. It is focused on building our nutritional literacy and promoting our healthy habit, while helping us balance our diet with tasty, affordable recipes. We work on our increasing our physical activity levels by focusing on daily walking as a form of easy and cost-free exercise.
FoodFit is a 12-week program, meeting once weekly to engage in a short discussion with light snacks, a bit of light physical activity that usually involves a short walk, and most importantly cooking a shared meal from scratch using fresh ingredients. A typical workshop lasts 3 hours, the bulk of which is spent learning about healthy food habits and cooking and eating together!
Ages: 18 years old and up
Length: 12 weeks
Spaces are limited, so it is recommended to register now.
