Edible Allan Gardens
Building Roots worked with the City of Toronto, Ryerson University and others to create an urban agriculture demonstration at Allan Gardens, giving over a dozen diverse local groups a change to grow food in a beautiful urban setting.
The Urban Harvest Festival was the first of its kind in Allan Gardens. Building Roots worked closely with ERA Architects, caterToronto, Friends of Allan Gardens, Ryerson and involved residents to create a hugely successful event in the park. It was a day that brought out many families to hear Sharon and Lois, eat delicious local food, see what new and exciting things urban agriculturalists were up to, drink fresh cider from Not Far From The Tree and get a strong sense of what was possible in Allan Gardens. We look forward to developing an exciting urban agriculture project soon!
