Project Crossroads expands our schoolyard Planting for Change program to encompass Peel Region’s unanimous declarations:
- Climate change is a crisis (2019)
- The COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis (2020)
- Anti-Black racism is a crisis (2020)
Project Crossroads delivers SK through Grade 12 public education curricula for STEM, environment, leadership and well-being in collaborative partnership with school teams of educators, students, and community volunteers. We co-design plantings of native tree species for privately-owned, publicly-accessed sites such as schoolyards, hospital grounds, faiths-owned property, and conservancy lands.
