UPDATE: BurlingtonGreen is applying a safety first protocol canceling our in person staff and volunteer participation in community programming and events effective immediately. Implications of COVID19 are evolving quickly and it’s important we act proactively to protect the health and well- being of our team members as well as the audiences we serve. Carrying out our critical work to protect nature and to create a cleaner, greener Burlington can't wait. And so, we forge ahead, pivoting our efforts to inform, inspire and empower the community to join us in making a difference in new and rewarding ways. From waste reduction to up-cycling activities and connecting with nature, we are excited to help you take eco-action right now! Please head over to our new COVID-19 response page for more tips and resources to take eco-action during the pandemic.

Thanks to the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and the Burlington Foundation, this year we are responding to COVID-19 by pivoting and expanding on our impactful Grow to Give program as we connect with more gardeners throughout Burlington, ensuring the fresh, healthy produce is safely delivered to local food bank agencies.Click here to learn more.
