Toronto’s Greenest City sprouts in Parkdale
Yonge Street’s videographer Rose Bianchini went to Parkdale to see what Greenest City is up to in that neigbourhood.
Greenest City is an award-winning charitable organization that grows local organic food, youth leaders and healthy, sustainable communities with a focus on Toronto’s Parkdale-High Park neighbourhood. Our animated, community-driven initiatives are grounded in urban agriculture.
Why focus on food? Because we believe that food and urban agriculture offer opportunities to connect people to nature, to each other and to new skills, simultaneously addressing a variety of critical urban issues.
There is a reason community members named our first garden “HOPE.” The garden is animated by neighbours working side by side to grow a healthier, more sustainable, community. A sense of hope is in the air.
