Hi Friend!

Happy June! It's almost summer and although the campus and city gets a little quieter there's no shortage of eco-related events to keep you busy! How about joining an environment day in your ward? Or visiting a local farmers' market for some Ontario eats?

Here at U of T, congratulate graduates at convocation, or submit your ideas to the Healthy Generation Fund

Need a breather? Get outside for Bike Month or Canada's 150th birthday!

Greenest Regards,
Narisa, Jess and Dione
