Greenhouse &
Compost Demonstration Centre

The Stop’s Green Barn at Artscape Wychwood Barns is a heritage building, redesigned to Gold LEED environmental standards.

The Green Barn houses a 3,000-square-foot state-of-the-art greenhouse in which we grow a variety of produce. The food we grow year-round is split between our programs, our volunteers, and our Food Bank.

Our compost demonstration centre produces much-needed compost for our greenhouse. Large composting units and vermicomposting bins serve a triple purpose – to divert food waste from landfill and turn it into a rich growing medium for greenhouse plants, and to teach the value and methods of composting to visitors. The worms in the composting bins are popular with kids and are great ambassadors for the world of biodiversity.

Due to increased interest in opportunities to access our greenhouse, we have restructured our volunteer and engagement opportunities. Read more and feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
