Children’s Garden

The Children’s Garden located on the left side of the Ryerson Athletic Centre (RAC), is home to an array of natural opportunities for programming for the children, parents and teachers in the School of Early Childhood Studies’s Early Learning Centre. In the Spring of 2011, this site was dug up for water repairs to the RAC. The potential of an edible garden was immediately seen when presented by Ryerson’s Campus Facilities and Sustainability. The Early Learning Centre community are actively engaged in the garden, including designing, planting, maintenance, harvest and sharing of the produce. Additionally, children learn to work co-operatively in groups and create art and stories inspired by the garden. The children’s garden now features raised beds (made possible by Inovapost) that flourishes with peas, beans, strawberries, tomatoes, blueberries, lettuces just to name a few. Be sure to visit!!!
