Protecting our city's green space and restoring natural areas improves ecosystem biodiversity, benefiting all of us and the local wildlife we share our communities with. Our Healthy Habitat program is designed to help YOU organize your own stewardship activities. Our spring green-up events provide a fun and rewarding opportunity for citizens of all ages to participate in tree planting projects.
The Grow to Give garden is located at the Central Park Community Garden. Volunteers help to plant, maintain and harvest seasonal organic fruits and veggies. Each harvest is delivered to Food for Life which distributes this healthy, locally grown fresh food to Halton food banks and community agencies.
A better future needs a plan. This environmental awareness program highlights current local issues while gathering public input and support for solution-focused change. With a stronger united voice we advocate for policies and bylaws to effectively protect the rights of the environment now and for the future.
Offered to school and community group children ages 4 to 12, this program provides a fun, interactive and educational experience to encourage children to live more softly on the earth and to grow up green.

This impactful program links volunteers to waste diversion projects in the City, resulting in meaningful, measurable benefits to improve the health of the environment. Since our agency's inception in 2009, we have provided our Event Greening services to a whopping 45 events, resulting in an estimated 60,900 kg (60.9 tonnes), of waste diverted from the landfill.
We connect youth from across the City with each other and with local opportunities to make a positive impact on the environment. We aim to create the next generation of local eco-heroes through youth mentoring youth, environmental leadership opportunities and participation in tree planting, event greening and more.
