The Farm at RRU
RRU is reimagining a former 5.26 acre walled Edwardian kitchen garden into the Farm at RRU, which will serve as an important gathering place for diverse community members. Free workshops and community events, courses and research projects, and volunteer opportunities will create a strong foundation for learning that drives food security in the region.
Thanks to donor support, the Farm at RRU’s Giving Garden that was planted last year provided more than 1,000 pounds of fresh vegetables to food-insecure seniors, single parents and newcomers to Canada. With continued donor support, the size of our crop – and the people helped – will increase and the Farm at RRU will expand to include:
- a larger Giving Garden and new Market Garden
- an Indigenous Medicine Garden
- and a restored and expanded polyculture orchard.
Rooted in regenerative and Indigenous practices, RRU will cultivate sustainable food and medicine that grows both community well-being and a shared harvest, reducing food insecurity and fostering community connections and learning opportunities.
The Farm at RRU is supported by TD Bank Group.
