Toronto Chapter Bursary Program 2024
The Toronto Chapter of Landscape Ontario has a long-standing tradition of financially supporting local community projects as a way of giving back to the neighbourhoods our members live and work in. In the past this has taken the form of a single larger contribution to a worthy project. This year the Chapter will distribute their contribution through grants of up to $1,500 each, in support of multiple small-scale projects that will benefit various communities and neighbourhoods within our region.

We are looking to support projects that would:
  • Enhance physical, mental and spiritual wellness;
  • Offer environmental benefit, such as pollinator or wildlife gardens;
  • Provide community or educational benefit, such as community gardens.
  • Candidate projects could be actual gardens or organizations that support garden-related ventures, such as seed exchanges or urban fruit harvesting.
  • Projects could be located on public or private property, but those located on private property must demonstrate community benefit.
  • Projects on public property must have the permission of the municipality.
  • The money would be granted for materials, such as seeds, plants, soil amendments or tools, but not for compensation of industry professionals. Landscape Ontario Chapter members may choose to participate in the project pro bono.
