We Grow Food (WGF) is a grass roots organization that provides education to community members about connecting to their food in an environmental, sustainable and health-conscious way. WGF teaches and uses organic practices and supports a “no waste” philosophy—using everything they grow as either food or organic matter for composting to create healthy soil.

Established in 2013, WGF farms has nearly two urban acres, in five neighbourhoods, producing approximately 21,000 pounds of food, and have offered 40 educational programs.

The new WGF Mobile Greenhouse Classroom, which includes eight educational and interactive modules and food garden installations, is being developed for the summer of 2020 and will be deployed at schools throughout Durham Region. The mobile classroom will educate students on things like sustainable eating, water conservation and catchment for your garden, composting for healthy soil, seed saving and much more.
