This week, the City announced the recipients of the PollinateTO community grants. Through the grants, the City provides funding of up to $5,000 per project for community-led initiatives that create or expand pollinator habitat on public and private lands in Toronto.
I am happy to share that this grant was awarded to several projects in Ward 4. The list of recipients include:
- HPAS Garden Stewards (Annette Street Primary School & High Park Alternative School)
- Parkdale Junior and Senior Public School Garden Committee
- The Junction BIA
- West Bend Green Community
The funded projects will serve as pollinator pathways and also engage and educate the community through a variety of measures.
More information about the grant recipients and their projects is available on the City’s PollinateTO Grants webpage.
The City is also hosting compost days where free compost will be available for pick up. The compost is created from yard waste and organic material collected at the curb throughout Toronto.
Ward 4 Compost Days:
April 28th at 2:00pm at Masaryk Cowan Community Centre (220 Cowan Ave)
April 30th, at 10:00am along Wabash Ave.
May 7th at 10:00am at King George Junior Public School (25 Rexford Rd)
A reminder to please bring your own shovel and containers to pick up compost.
