What is Greenhound?
Our vision is to enhance the livability of our urban areas and provide green spaces for people to rest and cope with illness, stress, and mental health challenges. We aim to develop botanical gardens and dedicated spaces in Canadian urban areas that will be freely accessible for people to come to relax, learn plant care techniques, share plants, take therapeutic classes, and interact with others. We also aim to complement the plant-sharing community by making plants more accessible to all regions. Our goal is to contribute to the community and have an impact on mental health wellness of all Canadians.
About the initiative
Plants have brought us amazing therapeutic support. Our experiences led us to become inspired to help spread green vibes to other Canadians who may find comfort and restoration in having plants in their homes, or a garden space to visit.
We started the Greenhound Canada Foundation to develop public and accessible botanical gardens and dedicated spaces in urban areas for people in Canada to use for relaxing, learning plant care techniques, sharing plants, and to interact with others. We also aim to complement the plant-sharing community by making plants more accessible to all parts of the country. Also, all of us just really enjoy learning about and growing plants so much.
All efforts by our initiative are volunteer-led and the proceeds of our fundraising go towards our goals such as of building healing gardens and to support other public community and health care ecotherapy initiatives. Our overall goal is to enhance the livability of our urban areas and provide green spaces for people to rest and cope with illness, stress, and mental health challenges, as a part of a connected and welcoming community.
