Welcome to LEGS
Lakeshore Environmental Gardening Society
– Bringing communities together one plant at a time.
COME. JOIN. PARTICIPATE.
Take our Garden Steward Survey —–> here
LEGS is located in the heart of South Etobicoke where the breeze from the lake makes for later springs, cooler summers and longer falls. It’s a special area where you are never far from water and a natural area, whether it’s Lake Ontario, Etobicoke Creek, Mimico Creek, or the Humber River.
Rooted in this patch of geography LEGS is a community group dedicated to green spaces, green thumbs, fresh ideas, and healthy environments. We share resources, ideas, information. We welcome local gardeners to meet, share ideas and gardening tips and work on saving the environment one plant at a time.
Our main garden is located at the Daily Bread Food Bank, located at 191 New Toronto St, Etobicoke, ON M8V 2E7.
