Environment Day is always a huge success in Willowdale. Hundreds of residents come out to the event to dispose of unwanted household items, pick up free Green Bins and Kitchen Containers, donate items, and get top quality compost for the year’s gardening season. Many residents have expressed great interest in additional environmental initiatives and events. To develop these, we want to know what types of environment initiatives you would like to see take place in Willowdale. What environment friendly workshops would you and your family like to attend? What products would you like to know more about? Your feedback is welcome. Please send us your suggestions by filing out the form on the Contact Us page. We look forward to hearing from you.
One of the projects that was successful this past year is the Parkview Community Garden. This large community garden is located adjacent to the historical John McKenzie House at 34 Parkview Avenue. The project was funded through the City of Toronto's Clean and Beautiful initiative, which successfully renews public spaces with the participation of the community. The community garden was planted in the summer of 2009 and fulfilled it's mission to produce healthy, locally grown food for the Willowdale community. Community volunteers are continually needed for upkeep of this beautiful garden, and to plan for the next growing season. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact our office, or visit the Parkview Community Garden to let them know of your interest.
