The Riverdale Farm Stewardship Group (RFSG) was formed in February 2013 following a City Council directive to create a strong, single voice to seek out sustainable funding, create new learning opportunities and develop the Farm’s financial opportunities for the future.
The RFSG works closely with the local city councillor, Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation staff, numerous stakeholders and partners, and members of the general public. We aim to create new and vibrant partnerships which that inform, educate and increase public awareness of the role farms have played and continue to play in our lives, now and for future generations.
The RFSG is comprised of a working group of volunteers who applied for and were selected by the City. Members are appointed for a 2-year term. The primary goal of the RFSG is help to preserve and enhance the Farm experience through Fundraising; Partnership Building, and Enhancing Communications.
