Microgreens & Aquaponics Scadding Court Community Centre

Ontario, Toronto

Scadding Court Community Centre

Scadding Court’s history of addressing food access issues head on has continued to grow over the years. As the first community centre in Toronto to start a community garden in 1998, and a greenhouse, Scadding Court is eager to find creative ways to improve healthy local food options for the community. In addition to maintaining 150 garden plots, producing 1500lbs of fresh produce in our Diversity Garden for local food access initiatives, and coordinating multiple community kitchen programs, a number of food access initiatives continue to flourish at the Centre:

707 Greenery

Located beside Scadding Court Community Centre, 707 Greenery is focused on producing high quality, fresh, and organic microgreens for the surrounding community and local restaurants. Beyond providing people with the best produce, we aim to advance both social and economic dividends in the local community – either by creating employment opportunities for youth who face challenges, or to subsidize funding shortfalls for other Centre programs and services.

707 Aquaponics

Aquaponics is the practice of growing and harvesting fish and plants within a largely self-sustaining, controlled ecosystem. The increasing need for urban food security – and related sustainable education and resource initiatives that are economically viable – is what led Scadding Court Community Centre to work with partners to provide an opportunity for marginalized members of the local community to gain skills, a source of income, and contribute to the socio-economic health of the community.
