Hillside Urban Farmers for Sustainability

HUFFS is a community of people, interested in food gardening, who live in or near the Hillside-Quadra, NorthPark, Fernwood area.

Our Mantra

We share information about food production and support each other to produce more food locally.
We connect through food growing meetings, garden tours, email  contact, etc.
We promote food security.
We welcome diversity in our membership and in the functioning  of HUFFS
We provide a platform for discussion and a context within which initiatives can be launched.  We do not take positions on ways to achieve our purpose; we invite members to participate in ways they see fit. Consequently, what we do – the projects and activities we initiate – depend on the passions, interests, and  assets of  our members. Choices are made individually and collectively.
We encourage participation, collaboration, discussion, generosity, creativity, personal ownership and fun – and we  work with as little urgency as we can!

Our Purpose
We have a three-fold purpose:
~ Sharing information about, and practical support for, various aspects of food production
~ Expanding understanding about the nature of food security and involvement in promoting it.
~ Providing a means for discovering like-minded neighbours and building stronger, more meaningful and fun connections within the neighbourhood.

We seek to promote and maximize food production and community food security, and hence contribute to personal and collective resilience, in as wide a variety of settings in our community as possible, in as sustainable a manner as possible.

We envision living and working in a vibrant neighbourhood, in a manner that promotes the well-being of ourselves as well as of future generations.  Such a neighbourhood would be socially, economically and environmentally healthy, equitable, sustainable and resilient.ind us on Facebook
