History

Green Thumbs Growing Kids is a non-profit registered charity run by a Board of Directors, founded by Sunday Harrison as a project in 1999. Our programs take place in downtown east Toronto, in dense neighbourhoods with little green space and many newcomer families. We are proud winners of a 2009 Green Toronto Award, for making ecological food production part of inner city childrens’ school day.

In 2008, we incorporated and in 2009, received charitable status. Our charitable business number is 80696 2353 RR0001.

Our mission is to empower urban children, youth and their families to learn about, grow and prepare fresh foods, cultivated in an environmentally sustainable manner, in hands-on programs. Our vision is of healthy communities with learning gardens everywhere!
