About

Mission
The Dig In! Campus Agriculture Network exists to support, empower and grow small-scale, sustainable food production at the University of Toronto. We represent a network of autonomous urban agriculture projects, rooted in particular colleges, campus organizations, and academic departments. We also maintain our own series of demonstrative food gardens and provide programming related to urban agriculture and food issues.

Goals and Objectives
  • Raise awareness at UofT about food and agriculture issues by providing events and programming on issues including sustainable agriculture, food security, environmental policy, and community development.
  • Support and empower urban agriculture projects on campus through shared promotion and event collaboration, and by providing information, advice, or resources to new urban agriculture projects on campus.
  • Enhance visibility, productivity and sustainability of campus agriculture projects by ensuring continued planning, maintenance and  – when resources can support it – expansion of campus agriculture projects.
  • Use local, sustainable food production as a platform for social, environmental, and academic engagement by encouraging experiential learning and opportunities for skill-sharing, sustainable leadership development and research collaboration.

  1. […] Dig In! Campus Agriculture Network supports, empowers and grows small-scale, sustainable food production at the University of Toronto. It represents a network of autonomous urban agriculture projects, rooted in particular colleges, campus organizations, and academic departments. Many individual projects, including Kahonitake Kitikan, a garden and sacred meeting space supported by the Native Student Association, and the Sky Garden, a collaborative project between the U of T Urban Agriculture Society and the Food and Water Institute are an integral part of Dig In’s vision and mandate. Maintaining its own series of demonstrative food gardens and providing programming related to urban agriculture and food issues, this network is doing great things around the education and support of urban agriculture.
