Field Trip to Black Creek Community Farm

indexField Trip to Black Creek Community Farm
Saturday, June 15
10:00am-4:00pm

Join the Toronto Youth Food Policy Council and TFPC on a field trip to Black Creek Community Farm. BCCF is a seven-acre farm located on conservation land in Toronto; it aims to engage, educate and empower diverse communities through the growing and sharing of food. Led by Everdale, with partnership from FoodShare, Afri-Can Food Basket, and Fresh City Farms, it is staffed and supported by community residents and aspires to feed the local community fresh, healthy food. BCCF is an intergenerational place of learning and training where youth can reconnect to the story of their food, a new generation of urban farmers can be trained and the community can gather to celebrate.

We will hear from planners on the importance of planning food and farming spaces, tour the farm and share a meal together. Lunch will be provided.

The TYFPC has organized a bus that will take people from Downsview Park to the Black Creek Community Farm.
