This Rivers Rising walk brought me closer to nature…I’m learning about history and traditions of land of Indigenous people…until this moment I didn’t feel such a terrestrial connection to the soul of this country.
— Nataliya, Rivers Rising Ambassador
“Having RAINscapers create and work on our very large (and previously empty) garden was a wonderful experience. They were a pleasure to deal with and were absolutely accommodating, skilled and enthusiastic; they treated our garden as if it were their own. They worked extremely well together, with us and with Helen Mills. It was clear how motivated they were to learn and a delight to watch their work become more masterful in the few months they were with us. We’re eager to see the results in the spring – but friends who are “gardening experts” have said that it will be magnificent!”
— Ellen, RAINscapeTO client, 2017
“We love that RAINscapeTO is a social enterprise, and that the RAINscapers are so friendly, knowledgeable and very hardworking. Thanks so much for helping create our beautiful rain garden that is capturing water that was running right into our basement before. Not only that, but it attracts butterflies and pollinators – we never know which butterfly will be visiting as the seasons change. It’s a talking point in the neighbourhood, and so many people stop by to ask about it and say how much they love it.”
— Adrienne and Myra, RAINscapeTO clients 2016, 2017
“Working at Toronto Green Community has been an amazing experience so far. I have come to care about the environment and all the creatures that live in it… When I first joined Toronto Green Community, as a Rivers Rising ambassador, I learned about the condition of our water and how it affects us and our planet. This summer I became a RAINscaper and have worked on creating rain gardens and on other eco landscaping projects. In my life I have struggled with homelessness and depression – I never really cared about the environment, or my health and well being. I faced many struggles but I never fully gave up on myself and my ability to make a difference somewhere. Sometimes I look back and reflect on those moments and how different things are for me now. Leading walking tours and educating others on the struggles that our planet and wildlife face everyday makes me feel like I am making a difference. Whether its leading a walking tour, or installing a rain garden I will continue enjoying this awesome journey that I have been taking.”
