Blooming Boulevards, with Hoffmann Hayes and Agritecture, is in the initial stages of developing an accessible community greenhouse plan for individuals and organizations who share a common goal to create a more sustainable city by growing native plants that mitigate pollinator habitat loss and vegetables to enhance food security. The work is being generously supported by Trillium Foundation's Resilient Communities Fund.
We are reaching out to you directly as we're looking for leads on potential sites for greenhouses, or greenhouses that are underused or empty in the City of Mississauga. If you know of potential sites or have ideas for how to identify potential sites, we would appreciate hearing from you at this critical stage in the project planning. Preferred sites would have indoor growing space and, ideally:
Indoor space for office, storage, and education
Public transit accessible
Accessible washrooms (on site or nearby)
Outdoor growing space
