Corporate Engagement Opportunities
Ecosource is offering a unique opportunity to meet your corporate engagement goals through a hands-on experience. Join us in making an impact while learning about sustainable food systems and developing your gardening skills. You will also learn simple ways to support local food systems that you can use at home.
Our Corporate Engagement program is designed to engage up to 30 employees in fun, social, and physical activities at our 15,000 square-foot Iceland Teaching Garden in Mississauga. This interactive opportunity will allow your team to support and give back to your local community while learning about gardening in a changing climate and contributing to environmental sustainability.

Ecosource’s Corporate Engagement package is offered as an in-person, hands-on experience. This excellent team building activity is facilitated by our team of local experts in sustainable food systems, and includes:
- A tour of our 15,000 square-foot market garden, The Iceland Teaching Garden and introduction to the onsite sustainable urban gardening features;
- An interactive session to develop your team’s knowledge about gardening in a changing climate and time to learn new gardening tips and tricks from our experts;
- A chance to get your hands dirty by participating in seasonal activities such as weeding, planting, watering, harvesting and garden improvements, with fresh produce donated directly to local food banks and community programs;
