Food Up Front is a volunteer-run organization working to improve Toronto’s climate resiliency by supporting food growing any where urban gardeners have space to plant, including front yards! Since 2020 we have provided over 1000 households throughout the city with free seeds. We are also building a network of seed savers to collect a resilient, free, and Toronto-specific seed bank.
