The UTSC Farm is a 10-acre brownfield site that will be dedicated to teaching, research and community engagement.
The project is at its early stage. In 2018, the site has been surveyed and fenced. We built and installed 6 raised beds of 4′ x 8′ x 16″ and successfully grew various crops (tomatoes, kale, garlic potatoes, ground cherries…)
Teaching and research activities, summer camp, and guided tour are happening at the farm during the growing season .
Call for proposal to use the teaching campus farm for the 2020 growing season (March to November 2020) is now open. Please feel out the online form to submit your request. Deadline to submit is Dec. 15, 2019.

The Campus farm is located on the north side of the U of T Scarborough campus beyond the Morningside Athletic fields.
It is accessible by car from Conlins road and Chartway boulevard or on foot via the walk path from Ellesmere road to Pan Am drive (C2 on campus map) and walking through the UTSC athletic field. During events, signs will be installed along the walkway.
