The Niagara Farm Project is about “building a self-reliant food economy in Niagara… it’s about farming Niagara as a whole, as a collective.”
So far, the project has four farm locations, more than 80 acres of land and 19 farmers and volunteers from across the Niagara Region, including students. The idea behind it is collaborative micro farming, and this idea is not a new one.
It’s only since the widespread introduction of factory farming and commercial agriculture that self-reliant food economies have largely disappeared from developed countries, forcing most people now to rely on imported foods and grocery chains.
The strategy behind the Niagara Farm Project is to develop a collaborative network of students, volunteers and farmers who will sow seeds and raise livestock across the region.By having people work their own land or contribute their time to the project’s farms, the community will not only be able to offer residents more accessible locally-grown alternatives but less expensive food as well. The “goal is to develop a system of farming specific to Niagara,” the project’s website says.

The Habitat Niagara ReStore is a home renovation outlet offering new and gently used building supplies, kitchens, décor, appliances and much more for a fraction of the retail price, plus you never pay the HST. Whether you're looking to renovate your kitchen or bathroom, build a shed, or fix up your basement, the ReStore should be your first stop!
All proceeds from the ReStore go towards Habitat for Humanity Niagara’s administration costs so that every dollar donated to our charity goes directly towards building homes and serving families.
Join our team at the ReStore! Our ReStore volunteers assist with a number of different tasks including preparing donated materials for resale, sorting and pricing merchandise, product repair and cleaning, customer service, organizing and stocking shelves. To volunteer in the ReStore you must be willing to help, be friendly and customer-service oriented and be able to commit to at least one weekly four-hour shift for a minimum of three months.
Event volunteers help to ensure the success of the many events that Habitat Niagara is involved with during the year. Each event is different and the volunteer opportunities will vary. Some ways that event volunteers lend a hand are at a registration table, being a Habitat ambassador at information fairs, serving and cooking food, setting up at events and much more.
Office volunteers help to keep our administrative costs low and bring a wealth of skills and experience to our organization. Habitat Niagara has many volunteer opportunities for students, professionals and retirees in our Fund Development, Communications, Family Services, Finance and Volunteer Services departments. Duties will vary, depending on our current requirements. Office Volunteers are required to possess computer skills and be able to commit to at least one weekly four-hour shift for a minimum of three months.
There are so many ways to volunteer!
