Ryerson Urban Farm aims to build capacity for urban agriculture through production, education and research. The Urban Farm operates productive growing spaces across the Ryerson University campus using spray-free, ecological methods. We offer educational programming to the public and engage with student and faculty researchers.

Our main production space is a quarter-acre rooftop farm located on the Andrew and Valerie Pringle Environmental Green Roof above the George Vari Engineering and Computing Centre. The farm is designed in the market garden tradition, with over 30 crops and more than 100 cultivars, along with three rooftop bee hives. Our ground-level gardens include a u-pick container garden, food forest, flower farm, rain gardens and a native pollinator garden.
