From eggplant to okra, discover how world food crops are now being grown in Ontario’s Greenbelt.

Walk down the graffiti alley and into our urban backyard garden, overflowing with exciting new vegetables from around the world—okra, eggplant, peppers, long-beans and more. Farmers from across Ontario’s Greenbelt are already successfully growing world crops and creating new markets close to home. Join the movement! Be inspired by our feature garden at Canada Blooms (March 14-23, 2014) and pick up your free okra seed pack and get started this summer. You’ll learn how to reuse furniture, recycle water and make your garden more pollinator-friendly.
