Troy-Bilt’s Community Garden Network

Rooted in a strong heritage of manufacturing rugged and reliable outdoor power equipment, Troy-Bilt is also dedicated to seeking ways in which we can help support networks with the common goal of developing sustainable food resources for everyone.

Grow Calgary

Grow Calgary is a 100% volunteer-run urban community farm dedicated to providing fresh, local, sustainable and healthy produce to compassionate food access organizations and vulnerable Albertans. Their urban farm, the largest in Canada, is situated on an 11 acres of public land located 1km west of Canada Olympic Park, site of the 1988 Winter Olympics.

This summer alone Grow Calgary and their network of 9000+ volunteers have produced thousands of pounds of fresh food without any chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Troy-Bilt Canada happily donated a Super Bronco Rear Tine Tiller at the start of the season to help them prepare their gardens for early planting.

The fresh food they harvest goes to just over 20 social agencies and organizations, including the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter, Inn from the Cold, The Drop In Centre, Alpha House, The Children's Cottage, Sunnyside Food Access Program and many more.  

Grow Calgary Community Farm is Calgary's Fresh Food Bank - Everyone has a Right to Eat Well!

Hamilton Victory Gardens

Hamilton Victory Gardens mission is to increase access to healthy, nutritious and culturally-appropriate fresh produce for individuals/families in need and to promote community engagement and social inclusion as volunteer community members' work together to help alleviate food insecurity. This mission is being realized through a form of "urban agriculture" by constructing raised garden beds on unused urban land throughout the Greater Hamilton Area. This summer Troy-Bilt Canada celebrated the dedicated network of volunteers with an appreciation event on July 8. Troy-Bilt Canada also donated a 42" lawn tractor, 4-cycle trimmer, leaf blower, and an InStep lawn mower to various Hamilton Victory Garden sites throughout the city of Hamilton. So far this summer Hamilton Victory Gardens has harvested 20,000 lbs of fresh food for food access programs throughout Hamilton.

We joined Hamilton Victory Gardens as they took us on a tour of some of their garden sites and various locations where they donate their produce.
