Gardens for toddlers to pre-teens
In the Spring of 2012 we received the exciting news that we were awarded multi-year funding from the United Way Building Stronger Community Food Security Grant to build gardens in childcare centres on the North Shore. We have installed six gardens in North Shore Neighbourhood House childcare centres. Our gardens help these children achieve better health outcomes and build strong healthy habits over the long term.
Stories from children learning and playing in our Intergenerational Gardens – coming soon!

We provide training, mentorship, and resources for volunteers interested in the Intergenerational Gardens. Participating is a great way to learn more about teaching young children and offer them an engaging experience! Sign up today!
