Directions: Our garden is located at 2800 Don Mills Road, in Toronto.  It is at the south end of where Don Mills is split East and West – just north of Sheppard Ave. E. Behind the Advent Lutheran Church.

Accessibility: We are fully accessible to people using Wheelchairs, Walkers, and Canes.

About our Garden: Our organic community garden is operated in partnership between Working Women Community Centre and the Advent Lutheran Church.  100 families tend their own garden plots, growing many cultural herbs, vegetables, flowers, and herbal healing plants.  The families here come from all over the world; our languages include Farsi, Urdu, Arabic, Romanian, Mandarin, and Cantonese.

Our garden was started in 2005 in partnership with the Advent Lutheran Church, Working Women Community Centre, FoodShare/African Food Basket, Oriole Community Services Association, North York Harvest and gardeners in the neighbourhood.  Funding for the community garden comes from the City of Toronto Food Security Investment Program and United Way. 
  
Our garden has a long waiting list, but if you live in an apartment building nearby we are happy to add you to the list.  You can stop by the garden on a Monday, Thursday, or Friday evening, or email Diana Gimaldos, the garden coordinator, at dkgrimaldos@workingwomencc.org  or email youth@workingwomencc.org.  We also accept both youth and adult volunteers.
