Welcome to LEGS
– Lakeshore Environmental Gardening Society –
We are 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 community garden is located at the
Daily Bread Food Bank, located at
191 New Toronto St, Etobicoke, ON M8V 2E7
Currently our garden is open to the public, volunteers and members.
However we need to follow strict social measures for Covid-19.
- Bring your own tools when possible. Disinfect tools when required to use tools from the shed.
Do not share tools and always wear gloves and a personal mask.
- Practice 6 feet of physical distance or 2 metres.
- No more than 5 people working in the garden at a time.
- The Garden is only used for food security purposes.
