Food Security

The Hilda’s Urban Garden Society (HUGS) was started in 2010 by residents of the Bayers Westwood community in Halifax’s West End. The project evolved out of a growing interest in food security issues in the neighbourhood. Currently, the Ecology Action Centre and Bayers Westwood Family Resource center are the stewards of this thriving garden, which boasts approximately 24 large raised beds and senior accessible beds.

The garden represents an important space in the neighbourhood, helping to grow food and community.
