What We Do
Southlands Grange strengthens the local food system by offering a place for community members to connect to the place & people that grow their food.
Southlands is a place to reconnect to where your food comes from. Join our Community Supported Agricultural (CSA) Program, come to the Farmers Market or go to one of the neighborhood food businesses located in the Market District.
Grange celebrates farming and food through events, workshops, and programs in an effort to reconnect people to where their food is grown and harvested.
Our community comes to gather at the Market Square. Connect to your community by attending the Farmers Market, gardening in the allotment gardens or hosting your own event at one of our community spaces.
Southlands has over 100 acres of conservation area and we are actively working on enhancing it with additional bird and bee habitat.
“Southlands Grange aims to activate a Community-based Farm and Market District that celebrates food and agriculture in an economic and social hub”
— Sean Hodgins, Founder
