Fairfield Food Forest is a permaculture garden growing a wide variety of small trees, berry shrubs, herbs and more. See what growing here.

Location: Porter Park, on Thurlow Rd between Kipling & Durban Streets.

A passionate group of dedicated residents brought Fairfield Food Forest, our first community garden, into being in 2013.


We have been working on creative ways to nurture our Food Forest during this growing season while protecting our community.

Upcoming work parties are cancelled, but if you are interested in working independently with your own tools, please get in touch (fairfieldcommunitygardens@gmail.com)

If you are looking for creative ways to stay involved in the Fairfield Food Forest until there is a work plan in place, you could plant a few seedlings in your home to pop in the Food Forest once we’ve set up temporary annual beds. From there, we can share this spring & summer. See updates The Food Forest Facebook Page.
