Seeds For Change


Seeds for Change (SFC) is a grass roots organization that has partnered with York Region Food Network (YRFN), to grow healthier neighbourhoods through school and community gardens. The gardens will provide citizens with opportunities to gain critical life skills, build cross-cultural, inter-...generational relationships, eat nutritional food and enjoy outdoor activity. Participants will cultivate a sense of connection and appreciation for the environment through hands-on experiences.

Citizens will have opportunities to create strong communities rooted in appreciation and understanding of ecology and agriculture. SFC will work with municipalities to fulfill our common objectives: for school and community gardens to improve the environment, health and community well-being as outlined in York Region's Sustainability Strategy, Building Markham's Future Together and Markham’s Greenprint Sustainability Plan.

We are looking for dedicated, enthusiastic people of all ages who are interested in environmental sustainability to join in taking care of the garden If you are looking for volunteer hours or just a productive way to spend time over the summer we would love to have you come out!

Feel free to come by every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 to 8:30 for workshops and gardening. As well, we hope to have come musicians from the area come and play some music for us while we work, if you are interested in that aspect we would love to hear from you! Please enter along the path on the east side of the firehall.

Parking is available just across the street at the Promenade Mall as there is no parking allowed at the firehall.

Also since we are just starting out, we would appreciate if anyone was able to donate any supplies to use in the garden. We need shovels, rakes, gloves, buckets, watering cans, things of that nature.

We hope you will come and grow with us!
