Creation care through food

A Rocha began its foray into sustainable agriculture over ten years ago through our Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) project in Surrey, BC. Building on our success in organic farming, we’re equipping community gardeners across Canada to grow food for their less-fortunate neighbours through our Community Garden Network. We’re turning schoolyards into farmyards in inner-city neighbourhoods through our Farm to Families project. And we’re bringing hope and health to newcomers to Canada through our Earth to Table project in Hamilton, ON.
