Since 1995, TGC has developed projects to address many environmental issues including climate change, waste reduction, atmospheric pollution, and stream water management.
Our mission is to inspire action by connecting diverse communities to build a sustainable future together.
Our Vision is to live in sustainable communities with clean air and water, abundant green spaces, minimal waste and access to local, organic food.
About Our Charity
Our current initiatives include:
Rivers Rising: Connecting people with nature and each other to create a blue green city by exploring Lost River watersheds for stories where food, water, history, and newcomer and Indigenous communities intersect.
Lost River Walks: Guided public walks along buried waterways to find out how human and natural water systems form our urban life support system, to connect with watersheds and take action for a restored ecosystem.
Community Eco-Gardens: A multi-faceted program engaging children & adults from diverse communities in ecological gardening and food security initiatives.
Eco-Gift Wrapping: Education about waste reduction through an alternative holiday wrapping service offered by our volunteers at various retail locations.
Eco-Themed Employee Activities: Meaningful activities for corporate staff volunteer days, team building and Lunch & Learn workshops.
