Urban Garden takes on The Green Street Challenge

By | Urban Garden News | No Comments

On August 20, Urban Garden will collaborate with Come Alive Outside and Open Streets TO┬áto take on The Green Street Challenge at the Yonge and Bloor intersection. We will be laying down 5000 square feet of sod for Toronto residents and guests to enjoy an afternoon outside in a pedestrian friendly environment – a quality not normally associated with one of Toronto’s highest traffic intersections.

The event is intended to inspire collaborative community systems that create the awareness, intention and opportunity for people to live healthier lives outside. The nature of this project is purposefully unstructured to allow for flexible use of this temporary green space.

We are excited to see this project come together and hope to see you there!
