Growing Food in Resource Constrained Settings

People who want or need to grow their own food are often limited by insufficient access to resources.


Rising populations and urbanization are increasing the demand for space, which in turn limits the amount of land available for people to use. To address this challenge, people the world over are adopting innovative approaches to growing food in resource constrained settings. Whether you are an apartment dweller in Canada or a small-scale farmer in Tanzania, there are many ways to use what is available around you to grow nutritious food at home.


Gardeners grow food for their families, build community, beautify neighbourhoods, and teach children and community members how it is possible to produce in small spaces. Watch the video and explore the resources page to find out different ways to grow food using what is available to you.
