Nathan’s Urban Farm

Growing food to support our vulnerable population. Donations from our farm will support youth at the Youth Opportunities Unlimited shelter. 

We are proud to announce the launch of our new project in partnership with:

  • Hutton House
  • Growing Chefs!
  • The Tea Lounge

Nathan’s Farm is a hydroponic urban farm. The Nathan T. Deslippe Memorial Fund initiated this as a community project to support 3 goals:

🌿 provide a sustainable local food source for our vulnerable population
🌿 enable education and employability training for people with disabilities
🌿 support food education programs to sustain our future

Funding for this project has come from the Canadian government Emergency Community Support Fund and administered by the London Community Foundation. Thank you to the committee for seeing our vision and supporting our efforts.

Community Collaboration and Support

Our Canadian government and the London community has come together to make this project a reality. Thank you to our collaborators and supporters.

It takes a village …to make a change.

  • Emergency Community Support Fund – Canada
  • London Community Foundation
  • TechAlliance
  • The Grove at Western Fair
  • Urban Roots

More details will be coming very shortly so stay tuned!

Gyzmo and friends

Take care

Launched at Growing Chefs! Ontario at The Grove at Western Fair District ! Thank you Andrew and team for opening up space for us. This is a win-win for us to be here and supporting education about growing vegetables, preparing vegetables and most especially... eating yummy vegetables!!!Growing Chefs! offers such informative, engaging content about food. Being able to reach youth to educate them about healthy foods is one of our 3 goals. This is especially exciting as Growing Chefs is running summer camps with youth. They will now be able to experience our farm first-hand and see how their food grows. The experience of eating a vegetable which has just been harvested IS AMAZING! The taste is indescribable. #sustainablefarming #sustainablefood #foodeducation #partnership #growyourownfood #foodpoverty #519london #ldnont ... See MoreSee Less

Strawberries, banana and mint leaves. Naturally delicious!Mint is being grown in a jar. It contains the roots and makes it super handy to walk out on the desk to cut leaves as I need them. A bit of nutrient solution periodically and it is happy! #foodie #foodsecurity #healthyeating #nathansurbanfarm ... See MoreSee Less
