The Common Roots Urban Farm is a ‘grow our own health’ project, a community farm as a piece of health infrastructure, - a place where the relationships between personal, community, and environmental health can be explored. This garden will be a hybrid garden with community plots, a market garden, and therapeutic landscapes that include native plants. Summer 2012 marks the opening season of the Common Roots Urban Farm (CRUF) at the corner of Bell Road and Robie Street
Soil for the farm has been generously donated by Kynock Resources. The soil is 40% Organic Garden Soil with peat moss and will provide our farm with the foundation for years of productivity. For more info click here.
Our mission at Common Roots Urban Farm is to deepen the connection between our citizens and nature; to empower our community to take a hands-on approach to their environments, to grow one’s own food; and to enjoy restorative landscapes that promote health and well-being.
