Green Thumbs offers food growing and environmental education programs in 4 inner-city schools and 2 park sites. Our programs take place in the east downtown Toronto neighbourhoods of St. James Town, Cabbagetown, and Regent Park. Our gardens are about kids and their grownups, plants and their people – from all over the world! In 2016, attendance was 6,375 children, 214 youth and 390 adults in 388 hours of high-quality programs.
Our Mission is to empower urban children, youth and their families to learn about, grow and prepare fresh foods, cultivated in an environmentally sustainable manner, in hands-on programs.
Bringing community together to improve the well being of children and the environment.
