Last summer the Children’s Garden at Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto underwent a magnificent transformation with the help of The G&L Group. Truckloads of soil, sand, mulch and stone were provided by The G&L Group for use in a variety of gardening and construction projects, all built by children, their families and community groups during school, camp and public programs.

The beautiful stone-seating circle accommodates 40 campers, while the mulch provides a soft surface for play and is also a great material for making hills to roll upon. The sand pit provides opportunities for endless experimentation and creating small worlds. The Children’s Garden also received a large amount of nutrient-rich soil to help the veggies and fruit trees thrive and produce a bounty of food for the children’s cooking program.

The materials provided by The G&L Group will continue to provide a key ingredient in the “you-build-it” experience for all who participate in helping this magical space grow and change for years to come.

Colomba Lamanna says, “We’re really proud of these contributions and think it’s great that Landscape Ontario is documenting and helping to share it within the community.”
