Market Garden

Market Garden is a new social enterprise initiative, built on the success of Project Reclaim.


It combines education and community engagement. Participants learn about urban farming, while becoming active in their neighbourhoods. The program is funded by Niagara Prosperity Initiative.

Market Garden helps at risk youth gain valuable future employment skills, promote entrepreneurialism, healthy eating habits and lifestyle choices.

Market Garden fosters a spirit of entrepreneurialism, promotes healthy living and environmentalism while reinvesting funds back into community projects, and engaging children and their families living in low income.

What People Are Saying
  • I enjoyed cooking group because it teaches us to cook new things we didn't know how to before. The instructor Brian did an amazing job running the program because he made cooking fun. I always look forward to it. It's great to learn how to cook good tasty food when you're on a tight budget.
