Youth Garden Work Sessions

Greenest City has just opened a new youth garden in Parkdale as part of its From the Ground UP program, and you are invited to be a part of this exciting venture.

Youth at work

Youth Work Session

Every Tuesday at 3:30 pm (meet in front of Masaryk-Cowan CRC, 220 Cowan Ave)

The youth garden is located in Dunn Parkette, across the street from Parkdale C.I.’s playing field on Dunn Ave. This garden is aimed towards creating a nurturing space for young people in the city to experience working in a garden, support in community building, and foster a deep appreciation for healthy living and meaningful work and participation.

We meet after school to work in the garden every Tuesday. The garden is in the beginning phase of its being, and all youth are encouraged to help in the positive creation of the space (design plots, create art, implement ideas etc.)

The youth work sessions are also an opportunity for those interested in the summer Youth Green Squad positions to secure a job interview with Greenest City through regular participation in the work sessions, and also to create a solid impression on us.

We also provide community hours for high school students that need them, along with snacks and refreshments as well. We know how tired you can get after a day’s worth of school.

Please wear garden work-appropriate attire. Contact us at gelek[at]greenestcity.ca or 647-438-0038 if you have any questions.
