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.
