Project Crossroads

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.

Students and community volunteers do more than assume stewardship of the sites. Plantings are permanently tagged, mapped, routinely monitored, and measured, with the gathered data shared for international climate change research.
