Corporate Volunteering

Corporate volunteer workdays and team building opportunities in our Grow-to-Learn Gardens.

Spend an active hands-on half or full day in one of our organic school urban farms, working as a team to help keep our learning and engagement spaces in safe, tip top growing and working order. Garden tasks can be tailored to your group, and include low-impact and accessible activities. Other essential tasks usually involve clearing, organizing, sowing, harvesting, weeding, digging, raking and planting. Ideal for larger groups, lunch is optional.


We have two locations to host your corporate group! 

John Polanyi CI (JPCI) Garden: Located at 640 Lawrence Ave. W at Allen Rd. Our 1.5 acre, John Polanyi CI organic urban farm has an outdoor kitchen, and covered seating area for large groups. Available Friday’s for up to 60 individuals from May - October.


Thistletown CI (TCI) Garden: Located at 20 Fordwich Drive at Islington. Our 0.5 acre,  Thistletown CI is supported by the PACT Urban Peace Program in collaboration with TDSB. The garden comprises 17 field beds and approximately 20 raised planters, designed for accessibility and sensory stimulation for diverse abilities.
