The Learning Garden could not have come to full fruition without the generous support of funding from the Toronto Chapter of TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.  Please visit their website to learn more about the important support they provide to many organizations for work related to the environment and sustainabilty.

Thanks also to OISE's Graduate Student Association and UTERN for their help with funding for the garden as well!
