Green Toronto Awards

Last Friday the City of Toronto, in partnership with Green Living, celebrated the people, organizations and neighbourhoods that are helping to lead the way to a greener Toronto.

I am proud to announce that Youth Mentors, part of Greenest City, was honoured with the Youth Leadership Award of the 2011 Green Toronto Awards! Congratulations! Youth Mentors, a group of Parkdale high school students, teaches participants how to grow and cook sustainable foods. Keep up the great work!
