The program provides each participant with the opportunity to spend a season working on an urban farming operation. Most of the education will be through hands-on experience and the skills learned will be focused on agriculture and social sustainability in an urban context.

We work in a neighbourhood that is experiencing significant social /economic challenges. Be prepared for physically and emotionally demanding work.
