A Season of Growth

CAPREIT's Urban Garden Impact

CAPREIT’s MicroHabitat Urban Gardens, located at 4010 Lawrence, 10 Tuxedo, and 8 Park Vista in Toronto, Ontario, and Domaine Bellerive in Laval, Quebec have wrapped up another fruitful season.

 

We are so proud that this initiative continues to yield not just fresh produce but also a sense of togetherness and support amongst our residents and local community. The collective efforts of our urban farming communities have resulted in an impressive 1300 pounds of fresh produce and vibrant flowers.

 

This successful harvest allowed us to support our residents and help local communities in need. The surplus of 5896 servings of vegetables found its way to The Daily Bread Food Bank, supporting families and individuals in times of need.

 

Additionally, 400 meals were donated to the Breakfast Club of Canada, contributing to a wider initiative of providing nourishment to those who require it most.

This initiative showcases CAPREITS commitment to sustainability, community engagement, and social responsibility. We’re excited to continue our efforts, offering more programs that promote health, wellness, and a strong sense of community to our residents.
