Lakeshore Environmental Gardening Society

The Lakeshore Environmental Gardening Society is a non-profit organization that strives to educate and empower community through organic urban agriculture practices. We have been an organization for more than 14 year. Our garden is located at the Daily Bread Food Bank, at the intersection of New Toronto st and Islington, and we are in constant growth adding native and pollinating fruit trees, vegetables and medicinal plants for the whole community to enjoy. We grow the community “one plant at a time” and always welcome newcomers that are just beginning to garden or are experts and want to share their own garden knowledge to the community. Learning gardening practices is one of the best ways people can reduce their carbon footprint and waste, through not only knowing how to compost and grow your own produce but to feel connected and important within the community of South Etobicoke. We hold many educational presentations, workshops and garden events throughout the year to spread the abundance nature has to offer.
