Leaders in environmental education, we provide presentations in schools and at EcoHouse, directly reaching over 8,000 young people every year. An additional 5,000 participate directly in our community programs, which includes Clean Air for Kids, Totally Transit for Seniors, Community Gardens, Climate Change Hamilton and more. Partnering with our local community and businesses, Green Venture provides services to an additional 1,000 people annually through programs like RAIN and the Enbridge Home Weatherization Program. Over 500,000 others are served through the educational component of these services.

What people are saying:
“I’m going to ride my bike to my friend’s house now, instead of asking my mom to drive me.” – Student, St. Marguerite d’Youville Catholic School
“A big THANKS goes out to you and your staff for the excellent activities at EcoHouse. The students had a great time and learned a lot. They’re STILL talking about it!” – Teacher, St. John’s Catholic School
“The Garden is definitely a community building exercise. We have meetings where people get talking, and they didn’t even realize they lived on the same street. . .We’ll build friendships and understand that this is ‘so-and-so’ from the plot next door, just like if we were (real) neighbours.” – Community Garden Participant
