Community Harvest, one of our urban agriculture programs, runs three collective gardens throughout Kingston.
Loving Spoonful also has a 2-acre urban farm at 100 Days Rd., next to Lakeside Community Garden. Along with help from volunteers and farm training participants, staff work together to plant, cultivate, and harvest a wonderful variety of delicious vegetables at these urban agriculture sites.
At the Community Harvest Markets, all items on the table are available at a sliding scale, $0-5 per item. With this dignified access model, we allow people to choose what they like from a broad array of fresh, local food, and everyone is treated with the same respect regardless of how much they pay.
We use agro-ecological principles at all of our garden sites, meaning all plants are grown without herbicides and pesticides, and we aim to build healthy living soil and agricultural ecosystems.
" Loving Spoonful's fresh food deliveries are AMAZING! As a service provider for clients who live in poverty, it is wonderful to be able to offer fresh food. We educate our clients on the various types of produce in the stand and help them with meal ideas."
