For Daniels, Urban Agriculture is truly a natural expression of who we are.
Always thinking outside the box, Daniels has worked hard to incorporate urban agriculture opportunities such as container balcony gardening, community gardening plots, greenhouses, food box pick-up programs, edible landscaping and farmers’ markets into our new home communities wherever possible. Located on the 4th floor Outdoor Terrace, the community gardening plots at Arc Condominiums will invite green thumbs to come together, establish a deeper sense of community and feel connected to the earth and each other in an interactive way.
This foundation of community has already started with Daniels Erin Mills and The Backyard Farm & Market, which was established in 2013. This unique Farmers’ Market has been a flourishing endeavour, led primarily by volunteers from the surrounding neighbourhood. The Farmers’ Market is open on Saturdays during the summer months and offers local, organic, chemical-free produce and artisanal baked goods from a variety of vendors. The market is also a community hot spot that offers other amenities such as harvest gardens, children’s play spaces, and a storytelling circle.
