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.

AQUAPONICS 707

 

      

 

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.

 

For more information or to speak with staff, please contact Jake Rutland at jake@scaddingcourt.org or call 416-392-0335.

 

To volunteer with Aquaponics, please complete a Volunteer Application form

This seasonal program runs May – October each year. Each week, we’ll do a variety of tasks in the garden including planting seeds, making compost, watering plants, maintaining crops and harvesting.

 

When: Tuesdays 9:30 to 11:30 am

Where: Scadding Court Community Centre

Who: Anyone interested in growing food – no experience necessary

FOODFIT

 

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!

 

Benefits:

  • Learn how to cook a variety of cuisine styles using healthy recipes. Participants also receive a free cookbook.
  • Learn the benefits of regular physical activity, with a focus on walking as a way to stay fit. Participants also receive a free pedometer.
  • Learn about nutrition and health in general through weekly discussions on certain topics.

Cost: Free
Ages: 18 years old and up
Length: 12 weeks

Spaces are limited, so it is recommended to register now.

The Partners for Access and Identification (PAID) project opens doors and breaks down barriers for individuals who do not have a fixed or permanent address. We begin by helping individuals obtain vital identification such as:

  • Ontario photo health card
  • Canadian birth certificate
  • Record of landing

We also provide guidance and awareness regarding other programs that are available, including community-based support services.
