The Gardengate Horticulture Program is an innovative horticulture project that aims to promote healthy eating and active living for persons living with mental health issues. Gardengate provides rehabilitation, skills, lifeskills training and vocational training for participants, while providing volunteer opportunities for members of the community. Healthy Living workshops include sessions on gardening, nutrition, cooking, food preservation, building, crafts, mechanics, pre-employment skills and lifeskills. Programs take place in a greenhouse, vegetable garden, and our kitchen classroom. Participants and volunteers increase their own food security by being able to take home organic produce in exchange for their help in the garden, while increasing the food security of the community by producing organic fruits and vegetables for local food charities.
