Community Garden Programs

Working in high-priority communities around Halton, Halton Food has developed thriving community gardens full of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Each week a staff member is present in the gardens where the residents (and kids!) know they can visit to help care for the garden, and ask any questions they have about the plants.
