The Gardens

Growing better communities in South Etobicoke

The Pod Project is a community garden concept using raised beds which are easy to maintain and are dispersed across locations within South Etobicoke.

The end goal is to donate the produce harvested to the Daily Bread Food Bank, LAMP CHC Good Food Market, or to persons within the South Etobicoke community that need it. ​

Organizations and residents engage in the project through planting, maintaining and harvesting of the planters.

The Long Branch Library, a member of our 2022 Garden Tour,  has been a participant in the Pod Project for several years.

They have several planters on the Library grounds.  Volunteers from Humber college and the Library maintain the planters.

The planters grow fruit, vegetables and herbs throughout the growing season.  Regular harvests provide fresh fruit and vegetables to the community in an effort to address local food insecurity.
