Help transform 5.26 acres to double food production from a Giving Garden for food insecure communities, while establishing an Indigenous Medicine Garden, Market Garden, and Polyculture Orchard.

Bring new life to a century-old treasure, enriching and rehabilitating our Japanese Gardens, including building a traditional Japanese teahouse as a sanctuary of peace amidst the chaos of everyday life for the community.

Help us reimagine and restore the historic Glass House in our walled garden—one of Canada’s oldest working greenhouses.
