The Garden Party

The Garden Party at Redeemer Lutheran is a giving garden dedicated to sharing healthy food with local people in need.

It is sustained by a diverse group of volunteers committed to cultivating and nurturing community, stewardship and learning through gardening.

New Volunteers Welcome

If you want to meet new people, get your hands dirty and make a difference in your community, The Garden Party needs you.  New volunteers are always welcome to drop by Saturday mornings starting at 10 a.m. from April to October. 

A Giving Garden .... By the Community - For the Community

We are a group of  15-20 volunteers who live in and around the Bloor By The Park neighbourhood. Together we are committed to building community, learning through vegetable gardening and helping those less fortunate in our community.

Guiding Principles

Over the past 9 years, The Garden Party has been growing and donating vegetables to the Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre (PARC) and St. Francis Table on Queen Street in Toronto.  We have also made donations to the neighbourhood food bank operated by the High Park Baptist Church.

In 2014,  The Garden Party made about 30 visits to the food kitchens between May and November, donating over 565 lbs. or 256 Kg of fresh produce and more than 300 herb bouquets.  Our biggest vegetable producers were bok choy, kale, Swiss chard, spinach, beans and many kinds of lettuce.
