Windy Way Garden – Food Security Initiative
The Windy Way Garden has been going strong for seven years. Located at 6 Glamorgan Ave, the garden has worked with many organizations including: Home Depot, Live Green and Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC). Throughout, the garden has been maintained and has flourished due to the efforts of Dorset Park Residents and Action for Neighbourhood Change (ANC).
We currently have fourteen plots for residents of Dorset Park and are revising this plan to include a children’s and communal garden. We also assist residents with maintaining gardens on their balconies or in their yards.
Priority for plots are given to members who have successfully maintained their plots from the previous year and assisted with watering the garden on a regular basis. If there is a high demand for plots, residents are asked to share or draw names to determine ownership.
The group is still actively seeking members. For more information, please call Helen at 647-216-3526.
