Hart House

Hart House has been a vital supporter of local food initiatives on campus. Since the group’s beginnings, Hart House has contributed to Dig In! in many ways – from staff and programming support to garden and event space. Dig In!’s work marries well with Hart House’s vision as a “living laboratory”. We encourage learning by doing and challenge expectations and norms with tangible, ‘rooted’ results.

Dig In! has also received funding through the Hart House Good Ideas Fund, a great resource for initiatives that enhance the student experience.

Check out the rest of Hart House’s food programming here.

Harvest Noon

Harvest Noon is an on-campus cooperative cafe focusing on local, sustainable and vegan food. Many garden projects on campus donate garden produce to Harvest Noon’s meals, and Harvest Noon has collaborated with Dig In! on several educational workshops and events.
