The Group's Purpose

The purpose of my Giving Group is to raise funds and awareness about Green Teams of Canada. The mission of Green Teams of Canada is to restore, conserve and enhance ecosystems to preserve habitat and wild species by engaging the public in educational hands-on activities such as: invasive plant removals, planting of native plants and trees, picking up litter and volunteering at non-profit educational farms.

Canadians care about their natural environment and must work together to ensure the future health of Canada’s ecosystems.

The objectives of Green Teams of Canada:

• Conserve, restore and enhance ecosystems
• Provide hands-on stewardship opportunities
• Raise awareness of parks and local food systems
• Connect volunteers to existing stewardship groups
• Develop leadership and team-building skills
• Cultivate a community of like-minded individuals
• Engage youth and at-risk youth
• Connect people to nature
