Camp Amy Molson Farm
Camp Amy Molson Farm is the farm and environmental education program at Camp Amy Molson, a summer camp for underserved populations of Montreal. The Farm Program provides education and opportunity for campers of 5-13 years old and staff, mainly from inner-city regions of Montreal to experience eating food they have grown themselves. The main goals of the farm program are to highlight the ways that we are connected to our environment, how nature provides for us and how we can care for it.
The Farm Program was established in 2011 and has been growing steadily. Currently, a variety of vegetables are grown starting in May to provide programming opportunities and food to feed the 220 people (150 campers, 70 staff) who are at camp every day. During camp season (July-August), children are engaged every day in small groups to help manage the gardens and learn about the crops. In September, we hold a harvest event for parents and kids to enjoy the fruits of our labour. We are looking to expand our farm plots in order to provide more programming and space to grow fresh produce.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
