Sharing Backyards Toronto
Sharing Backyards connects urban gardeners with no space of their own with those who have yards but not the time or skills to grow their own food. Garden partners share the cost of gardening supplies and the abundance of the crops. Help build your community's local food supply...one garden at a time.
The program and registration are ongoing.
