Our volunteers play a vital role in the work that we do. In 2021, they contributed over 12,000 hours to help make our community a better place to live. Our volunteers help us achieve the widespread change that is needed to help our environment – and each other – thrive.

Garden Volunteers (see below)

Join us at the Iceland Teaching Garden for drop-in volunteer sessions to help steward our urban garden space!  
This program runs from late April-October. We grow food for local food banks and each session includes seasonal garden tasks like seeding, transplanting, harvesting, watering, moving compost, and more. Learn about growing food in urban areas – no experience necessary! 
See below for the times available. Registration is needed prior to each volunteer session. There will be rolling availability and registration will open up two weeks prior to each timeslot. You are welcome to join as a volunteer at any point in the season – feel free to come to as few or many sessions as you’d like!

New Fall Hours
Tuesdays: 4:30pm-6:30pm

In the Region of Peel, we live and work on the traditional territory and treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We would like to acknowledge the first inhabitants of these lands and those who continue to live in these regions, including the Anishinabek, Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat, Ojibway/Chippewa and Métis peoples.

We occupy colonized First Nation territories and it is our responsibility to recognize our colonial histories, their present-day implications, and to work together to honour, protect and sustain Indigenous rights, and this land.
