Welcome to Canada's largest commercial city farm!
At Downsview Park we organically grow on two acres and in a greenhouse. It's where we run farm tours and events as well as many of our workshops. Our two dozen Member Farmers, trailblazers learning the ins-and-outs of farming as a career, each have a plot here.
After a year of back-and-forth discussions with the City of Toronto’s planning department, construction on our new 3,000-square foot greenhouse finally began in late 2016. Right next to Hwy 427, the greenhouse sits on property owned by Baka. Fully self contained and off-grid, the greenhouse boasts a rain water capture and irrigation system and uses solar energy to power the fans,
The Member Farmer program at Fresh City was established to connect urban farmers to land, facilities, and a supportive learning community. Today the program supports over 20 farmers as they pursue self-sufficiency and farming business dreams. Our farmers grow vegetables, herbs, and flowers for themselves to sell.
