beginners garden toronto

(Question)

Hello, I have a large backyard just north of toronto and plan to start a veggie/fruit garden this year with my son. I have NO IDEA where to start or how to do it, I am not a good gardener by any means. I need lots of help on where to begin, what to do, what to plant, etc. I am looking for any help or advice I can get. I was also wondering if there are organizations or companies in the gta that can actually physically assist in getting started, thanks!
