Giving Tuesday Campaign
GivingTuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good: make someone smile, help a neighbour or stranger, show up for an issue you care about, or give some of what you have to those in need. Since its beginning, GivingTuesday has grown into a global movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. GivingTuesday is a time when Canadians, charities, and businesses come together to celebrate giving and participate in activities that support charities and non-profits; to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need. Every act of generosity counts. Everybody has something to give

2023 Season Recap!
This year we grew our capacity this season by building two new high tunnels to extend our growing season into the colder months! We also built a new refrigerated storage shed and pack/wash house shed in our new community space, and our new tool/staff storage shed. Plus, we built a utility shed to connect hydro to the farm to improve our water irrigation system and bring electricity to our new buildings!
Since 2017, we have harvested over 80,000 pounds of produce, donated over 21,000 pounds, over 30,000 pounds of produce distributed through our affordable tier! This year so far we have donated produce to 13 donation partners for their own food-box programming. We have had over 1,000 visitors to our affordable farm-gate market this season!
Community Pop-up Markets
This year Urban Roots London had 8 neighbourhood community pop-up markets in partnership with Crouch Neighbourhood Resource Centre, Glen Cairn Community Resource Centre, LUSO Community Service, Northwest London Community Resource Centre, London Intercommunity Health Centre, Glen Cairn Public School, Victorian Order of Nurses, St. Mark's Anglican Church for a total of 62 pop-up markets!
Pop-up markets are in neighbourhoods across the City of London to help increase food security. All produce is distributed to individuals and families at no cost to them!
