About

Come help plant Vaughan’s first edible food forest! This forest will create a sustainable source of food and an opportunity for the community to learn while being involved in the growing and harvesting of some delicious locally grown food.

On planting day, look for City of Vaughan staff at the north end of the park, northeast of the pond, along the paved path. Residents are encouraged to bring their own gardening gloves to the event. Shovels will be provided.

If you are unable to attend the event but would like to be involved in the maintaining and harvesting of the food forest, please email [email protected]

City of Vaughan

With a population of more than 340,000 residents, Vaughan is one of the fastest growing communities in Canada, home to more than 217 ethnic or cultural origins with 113 different languages spoken. It is a vibrant, diverse, inclusive and equity-based community that recognizes and celebrates arts, culture and heritage.

We recognize that Vaughan is situated in the Territory and Treaty 13 lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and the Haudenosaunee. The City of Vaughan is currently home to many First Nations, Métis and Inuit people today. As representatives of the people of the City of Vaughan, we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and live in this territory.
