Join the Akachi Farms Harvest Festival for a local culinary experience.
The Living City Farm, a 4.8-hectare farm operated by Akachi Farms, is located at the Kortright Centre in Vaughan. The farm produces over 100 varieties of vegetables and fruits using biodynamic farming practices and innovative technology.
As a learning centre for youth, adults and new farmers, the farm offers educational programs to over 1000 people each year; these programs focus on local food, environmental stewardship and the role of animals in the farm system. The yields are sold directly to community members on-site and at farmers markets.
There’s nothing like savouring the taste of good food and knowing that it grew nearby. TRCA leases over 279 hectares of agricultural land to farmers, who grow food for the Greater Toronto Area. When you visit a TRCA farm, you are supporting local food and sustainable farming, right in your backyard.
