Help with the “Adopt a Planter Box” program created by Green Venture, in partnership with Barton BIA and Beautiful Alleys.  These planter boxes feature native perennial plants that support local pollinators.  The plants are naturally adapted to the climate and soil conditions of Ontario which means they require less maintenance, such as watering and fertilizing, once established.


Tasks include:

  1. Preparing plant kits at 601 Barton Street East to distribute to businesses along Barton St
  2. Delivering planter kits on Barton St to businesses between Emerald St and Sherman St
  3. Helping to plant in the planter boxes



Please complete our volunteer waiver before you sign up!
