Welcome to the Multi-ethnic Bosnian Community Garden in Toronto

New Horizons Community Garden was founded by the members of the Multicultural Association of Bosnian Seniors and their Friends, a non-for profit organization funded by Social Development Canada as a part of the New Horizons for Seniors Program. About Us Our main goals are to empower seniors by giving them a meaningful project to work on and to reduce their feeling of isolation by allowing them to interact with others. They can do this by gardening, participating in educational workshops and attending social gatherings.

In Memoriam

Svetozar Vuckovic (Vucko) loved gardening. His beans, tomatoes and herbs were admired by everyone. Vucko was also very knowledgeable about medicinal benefits of herbs, and was often asked for advice, for all kinds of ailments, by many seniors and members of the Association. He will be greatly missed, but the sorrow will be lessened by knowing that he is again in the company of his beloved wife Danica who died last year.
