Angel Oak at Ignatius

We are finalizing our first project in partnership with the Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph, Ontario. This unique location will provide everyone at Angel Oak the opportunity to access the grounds, urban agriculture, and services and programs offered by social agencies on site and in the community.  Schools, day cares  and holistic services are just some of the businesses already operating at the Orchard Park section of the Centre.  We hope to assist and promote these businesses, while we build Canada's first sustainable, all-inclusive community!
