As the Greenbelt celebrates its first decade, its biggest champion, the Ontario Greenbelt Alliance, is connecting with residents to explore and reinforce the Greenbelt's role in sustaining a healthy future for the region.
The project launches a Countryside Stewardship Network along the Credit River. An online tool, the Network will engage private landowners to share stewardship experiences, celebrate accomplishments and generally strengthen a stewardship ethic within the watershed and environmental outcomes, particularly around protecting wetlands.
This project supports a 2013 World Crop Learning Garden at the Toronto Botanical Garden. Vegetables grown in the demonstration and teaching gardens showcase new varieties that Greenbelt farmers are testing in their fields and using to build a commercial market.
The Niagara Escarpment Festival celebrates the work of the organizations that are involved in the preservation enhancement of the Escarpment. The event features musical entertainment, displays and activities from nature groups and it was held on July 17, 2013.
