Glendon Markets is a community market that sell high quality, culturally appropriate, affordable vegetables and fruits. This market bring healthy produce to neighbourhoods where it might not otherwise be available, and where farmers’ markets aren’t viable because sales are too low to cover farmers’ costs. This program is collaboration with FoodShare Toronto.

The Youth Food Centre is a community centre gathered around food-growing, harvesting, cooking, eating, education and advocacy. We seek to empower young people with essential food skills and provide an affordable food source for young people struggling financially because of the high cost of rent and tuition.

The Seed Library provides free and easy access to viable seeds to encourage as many people as possible to grow their own organic food and to save seeds through awareness and education. People plant the seeds in their gardens, raise the plant, let an appropriate amount go to seed and bring some of those mature seeds back to the library so that the collection continues to grow. Seed libraries reconnect us to the natural world, increase awareness and respect for seed farming, and where our food comes from.
