Phase Out Poverty

Community Farming

The Basics

Need Help?


Are you experiencing economic hardship and living in poverty? If so, we will...

  • lease you the equipment, tools, and supplies need to grown a crazy amount of food
Your cost?
  • Space - Whatever you can spare in your house or apartment. This may include, but isn't limited to: Floor space; walls, ceiling, basement, closet or storage unit. A balcony and yard
  • Time - Urban growing can feel a little intimidating, but all it takes is a little time, some attention, and plenty of love. Together, we'll learn and grow!
  • Money - Your financial cost of leasing our stuff is zero, zip, zilch, nada, and bupkis!
The catch?
  • You keep 25% of the growing yield for yourself, family, and friends, or sell off what you don't need - We'll even help you sell your excess yield at no cost to you and at 100% YOUR profit.
  • The other 75%:
    • 25% will be gifted to local shelters, homeless, foodbanks and soup kitchens, and low-income individuals, families and seniors in need.
    • 50% will be sold to support our program so we can help more people and expand our support in areas of affordable energy and housing
The benefits?
  • Save on groceries - With the cost of living continuously rising, more and more people are falling into poverty, so every dollar counts!
  • Supplement your income - If you're only source of income comes from social services, like Ontario Works, ODSP or EI, it isn't enough to survice on let a lone thrive.
  • Helping your community - Everyone needs a little support from time-to-time, and for any of us to get a head, we need to help each other and support one another
  • Fresh, nutritious, and healthy - Imagine eating fresh organic food you know where it came from and how it came to be. Free of chemicals and pestisides, and not Genetically Modified. Food like it was always meant to be.
The Honour System Community - The only way this program can work and continue to exist is by working together as a community, supporting one another and trusting in each other. We are people - We're a grassroots anti-poverty research and development initiative, charitable at its core, to build stronger and self-sufficient communities. We are made up of low-income community members based in Durham Region in support of local and area neighbourhoods.
