Urban Agriculture

Loving Spoonful’s Urban Agriculture program is working to get Kingston growing! We know that in order to build a more just food system, we need to massively increase the amount of food we produce locally. This is why we partner with and support local farmers!

There is enormous untapped potential for food production within the City of Kingston. Urban agriculture can build community, empower individuals with skill-sharing, and connect more people to fresh local food - and that’s what we’re all about.

Kingston Community Gardens Network

Loving Spoonful convenes the Kingston Community Gardens Network. The Network was established to support the creation of new community gardens on public or private lands, and to help existing community gardens flourish. We can work with your community group to help you through the process of starting and maintaining a Community Garden in your neighbourhood. Check out the Kingston Community Gardens Network website for more details! 

This KCGN is supported by the City of Kingston.

Garden For Good YGK

Producing food and saving seed are fundamental human rights, and we want to inspire everyone in the Greater Kingston Area to do so. This is not only to keep food and seed production in control of the people who grow and eat it locally, but also to meet an increased need for food donations for those who are vulnerable in our community. We can grow food and seeds almost anywhere - window sills, containers, balconies, backyards, front yards and community gardens. If you’re new to gardening, never fear! The Garden For Good campaign will bring together people with a range of knowledge, skills and resources so that we all feel supported.

Backyard Hens YGK

Did you know that the City of Kingston allows the keeping of up to 6 laying hens per household?

Raising backyard hens is a great way to provide yourself with a healthy & consistent protein source, plus they are a lot of fun!

 

More resources coming soon!

Stay tuned!
