After a long, cold winter the snow is melting and spring is in the air!  This morning in the garden I even saw a few purple flowers poking up out of the ground…

We’ve been hard at work this winter planning for the upcoming gardening season.  We are very grateful and excited to announce that we  received funding from Live Green Toronto to build a small greenhouse, plant a bunch of fruit-bearing shrubs (strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, and more!), and start a youth apprenticeship program in the garden.  Looking forward to getting all of these projects off the ground this spring! 

We are also thankful to Home Depot for a generous grant and gift card to redo the garden this year–we’ll be putting in wider pathways, and reorganizing the plots to make sure that everyone has an equal size.  Thanks Home Depot!
