High Park Children’s Garden
The purpose of the Children’s Eco Programs is to educate Toronto’s children, youth, and community members about environmental, physical, and social health. The Children’s Garden provides a variety of environmental education opportunities including curriculum based school programs, summer Eco Camps, youth cooking programs, free family drop-ins, and free community events. Using Toronto’s gardens, parks, and ravines, children are able to explore and investigate an outstanding urban natural environment.
The High Park Children’s Garden was a 2009 David Suzuki “Digs My Garden” Contest award winner. It’s an organic education garden planted, maintained, and harvested by children, for children. This fully accessible site is home to a butterfly garden, a “fedge” (a hedge made from edible plants – a “food hedge”), a naturalized hillside garden, and a variety of raised vegetable and herb beds shaped to spell out ABC.
