Deep in the heart of the city of Halifax there is a farm! Right next to one of the busiest intersections in Halifax. Common Roots Urban Farm
Things are growing! There are private plots and public plots. Everywhere you see a green stake, you can nibble and pick things. Look at this abundance of tomato!
From Tuesdays to Fridays 11:30-5:30 you can purchase lovely veggies and flowers and compost and gardeny things.These charming gals might be on hand to help you:)
Look at these!! I bought some purple beans. Alas they turned green when I cooked them but yum! so good.
Charities and interested groups have garden beds here too. Here is a story about the Paramedic's garden
