HOPE Garden Accepting Donations

All the wonderful programs and activities we do around the HOPE garden & the youth & Parkdale wouldn’t have been possible without the support and funding we receive from around the community.

As you know, although the work in itself is rewarding enough, it takes quite a sum of money to implement some of the projects that we like to see happen in Parkdale.

We humbly accept any donation and in-kind support that we can get from people like you.

To send us a cheque, please write it for “Greenest City” and mail it to:

Greenest City
c/o Masaryk-Cowan CRC
220 Cowan Avenue
Toronto, ON
M6K 2N6

Thanks again!

Hello Parkdale!

Welcome to our very own Hope Community Garden blog: a warm, comfortable place for everyone to keep in touch about upcoming events, special announcements, feedback and positive ideas.

Since the whole point of our organic garden is to ensure that everyone from all walks of life meet, colloborate and share ideas about how best to serve the community, this website will hopefully serve as a repository for all our thoughts and inquiries.

So, have a looksie, check out some of the pictures posted and just keep your ears on the ground for all our exciting developments.
