Global Roots Garden

The eight Global Roots plots at The Stop’s Green Barn are each devoted to particular ethnic communities with large populations in Toronto – Chinese, Tibetan, South Asian, Somalian, Italian, Latin American, Polish, and Filipino.

Each plot grows a diverse range of vegetables and herbs, and is tended by seniors and youth, many of whom were connected to us through our partnership with CultureLink, a newcomer settlement group. Gardeners meet once a week to tend the plots, socialize, and cook food. Bringing together seniors, many of whom were food producers in their native countries, with youth who don’t necessarily have any experience gardening makes for an important – and fun – inter-generational exchange of knowledge.
