Pitt Street Garden is a market garden that is located on the main street in Cornwall, Ontario. We offer a full variety of fresh, seasonal, organic vegetables. We produce a weekly food box program for our members known as a Community Supported Agriculture or CSA. Our micro farm grows on one acre of productive land using ecological practices. Our goal is to feed 100 families during the growing season. There are over 100 mix species of newly planted fruit trees and just as many fruiting shrubs to add to the production.
PSG is also a demonstration site for small scale, sustainable agriculture, building biodiversity. Food security is a big part of what we do. That is why we envision supporting a network of small scale market gardens or micro farms in and around our city.
We believe that urban agriculture can play a big role in the future of sustainable food production. It has been part of many societies for millennia and saving grace for different populations during difficult times. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations lists all the benefits to this type of food model, click here to have a look; http://www.fao.org/urban-agriculture/en.
