Now Accepting Applications for 2017 Pod Site Providers

What is the GARDENS POD PROJECT?

The GARDENS Pod Project stems from the concept of a community garden, except the pods tend to be smaller, mobile, raised beds that  are easier to maintain and dispersed to various locations within the South Etobicoke community.

Pods are defined as ‘sites’ that serve the end goal of supplying food to persons that are food insecure. There are three pod classifications, an organization pod, a residential pod and community pod.
