Located on the north side of campus, east of the Toronto Pan-Am Sports Centre, and beyond the Morningside Athletic Fields, is the U of T Scarborough Campus Farm. The 10-acre, brownfield site is dedicated to teaching, research, and community engagement on campus.
With 5-acres devoted specifically to develop teaching and community engagement, the farm will provide learning activities (e.g. lectures, seminars, tutorials and hands-on workshops), summer camp, and guided tours during the growing seasons. The Teaching Farm includes 30 raised planting beds, an Indigenous garden, and a small orchard which have been used successfully to grow various edible crops, medicine, fruits, nuts, and flowers.
The other 5-acres are devoted to research and provide U of T Scarborough faculty and their students an opportunity to carry out research studies. Each research plot is 5 meters x 5 meters.
The farm is accessible:
– By car from Conlins road and Chartway boulevard
– On foot following signs ‘Campus Farm’ on Military Trail to the entrance of the Morningside Athletic Fields on Pan Am Drive. Keep following signs across the field. Once exiting the field, turn left on the first street, Bridleholme Cres.
Please refer to the Campus Farm access map for details on how to access the farm.
