FirstService Corporation: FoodShare Toronto ~ An Edible Education
FirstService Corporation employees will be spending the morning on the east side of Toronto harvesting, watering and weeding a large school vegetable garden. The program is organized by FoodShare Toronto (https://foodshare.net/
), a not-for-profit that works with schools and communities to deliver healthy food and food education.
We will be out in the garden rain or shine – if the forecast is for rain please dress accordingly.
To provide you with some more context, here is a Toronto Star article profiling the garden: https://www.thestar.com/life/food_wine/2010/11/03/an_edible_education.html
We would also like to request a small donation (~$10 per person) to support FoodShare’s continuing efforts throughout the city.
This event is a FirstService Corporation employee event, however, we will look for opportunities to expand it in the future. If you are interested in learning more about this type of opportunity so that you can organize an event for yourself or your office, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
