Come to Gardening Day Saturday May 10


Volunteers are welcome to join the annual Gardening Day event happening Saturday, May 10 starting at 10 a.m. We’ll be weeding, pruning and cleaning the gardens and grounds around the Sorauren Fieldhouse. High schoolers: get some volunteer hours!

Bring gloves, shovels, trowels, clippers, pruners, and composting bags if you can spare one or two.

Once again, we’ll be joined by volunteers from the Yale alumni, who are participating in the annual global Yale Day of Service. These are Toronto Yale alumni who don’t live in the neighbourhood but who have “adopted” Sorauren over the years for gardening day. Thanks Yale!

Community garden meeting Jan. 23 at Sorauren Fieldhouse


Dreaming of a Community Garden at Sorauren Park? Help make it a reality!

Join us on Thursday January 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sorauren Park Fieldhouse, lower floor, for the first meeting to discuss the creation of an organic fruit and vegetable garden at Sorauren Park. All are welcome, black and green thumbs alike. No gardening experience necessary. Just bring your ideas, your love of nature and a friend.

For more information feel free to contact Arlene Hazzan Green at

Note: this project is different from the Adopt-A-Tree program planned for this spring, related to the new trees being planted as part of the Town Square project. Lots of planting in Sorauren’s future.
