Throughout the year, the TBGKids instructors guide school and summer camp groups in the planting and care of the Teaching Garden. These activities teach children where their food comes from and introduce them to the wonders of fresh-picked produce. Many campers and visitors come back to the TBG every year for Harvest Day. Throughout the season, campers, students, families, and garden volunteers harvest up to 900 pounds of fresh produce from the Teaching, Kitchen and Demonstration Gardens to donate to the North York Harvest Food Bank.
