Ecosource is moving in July! We are launching a Local Food Hub in the heart of Mississauga at St. Hilary Elementary School. With new on-site facilities, including a teaching kitchen and community garden, we are thrilled to be able to offer more hands-on programs than ever before. We look forward to welcoming you to our new home and working together to build a thriving hub of environmental learning and exchange. Join our local food movement!
Do you also hope for a better future like one of our youth volunteers Cindy Qui? Between school, extracurricular activities, and social life, Cindy is always trying to reduce her environmental impact and is constantly working with her friends to translate their social media engagement into real-world community change.
As a Local Food Ambassador for Ecosource, Cindy helps her community grow and access local, fresh, and organic produce. She empowers and mentors youth by sharing her skills and knowledge of urban agriculture and watches as the self-confidence of her peers grows alongside the sprouting garden. Cindy is a constant reminder of how powerful your voice and actions can be, even if you still have a curfew to follow!
Cindy is currently featured on our 2017 Annual Report. Click here to read more impactful stories like hers.
