Description


About us

Greenest City is a community-based charity in Toronto's Parkdale neighbourhood that uses food as a catalyst for social change. We believe that growing, preparing, and sharing food is essential to relieving social isolation and building resilience in our communities.

Part of Greenest City's core programming is dedicated to educational initiatives where children, teens, adults and families can learn about growing their own food, social and environmental justice, nutritional strategies, kitchen skills and food histories. Greenest City is proud to offer these programs free of charge to our community.

In the past year, we have been expanding our programming and community offerings. In the last six months, we've added two new staff members to lead the Urban Agriculture and Community Food programs. As we find ourselves in a better position to make meaningful change, we can see just how much potential there is in this vibrant neighbourhood.


About the event

We would like to invite you to our Growing the Future Fundraiser to help us to increase the reach of our programming and the depth of our impact.

We'll be partying at the Gladstone Hotel on June 26th. Join us for a night of live music, local food, giveaways and a silent auction featuring donations from local businesses.

Your ticket and contributions will directly build Greenest City's community-level programming and make real change in our neighbourhood.

Featuring live music by Citizen Jane and Heinz & Friends!

Hors d'oeuvres will be prepared by Chef Brandi Greenwood with ingredients from local farmers.

Silent auction items include donations from:
Made You Look
Plentea
Bullfrog Power
Citchen Candle Co.
Glory Hole Doughnuts
The Workroom Studio
Actinolite Restaurant
Rustic Cosmo Cafe
The Abbott of Parkdale
Float Toronto

and local artists!
