FOOD SECURITY PROGRAMOur food philosophy is driven by values on Environmental Sustainability: we acknowledge our responsibility as a community leader to increase our awareness and expertise in the field of environmental sustainability locally and globally; we strive to incorporate practices that minimize our environmental footprint; we provide and facilitate leadership to the community in the journey towards a sustainable relationship with the environment.
Harvest Festival is our annual event to celebrate the harvest, showcase gardening, display and exchange vegetables in the Frog Hollow neighbourhood.
On the event day, we also have live band music, puppet show performance and information booths from local food network organizations. It’s a joyful outdoor get-together for families, seniors and neighbours of all ages and all backgrounds. It’s also an opportunity for the community to learn more about gardening, food security and environmental sustainability.

Join us on September 10, 2021, from 10 am – 1 pm at Clinton Park (if it’s sunny) or Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House – 2131 Renfrew St (if it rains)
