Indoor & Small Space Gardening Workshop 

Join us for a new adult education series to learn more about indoor and balcony gardening! Living in downtown Toronto means we don’t always have space to garden outside, but we can still enjoy plants in the indoor spaces we do have. This virtual and in-person program series will cover topics like indoor plants in winter, starting your own vegetable seeds indoors, growing microgreens, gardening for families, and more!

Black History Month

The motion to officially recognize February as Black History Month was introduced in the House of Commons in 1995 by the first Black woman elected to Parliament, the Honourable Jean Augustine. The University joins in celebrating and recognizing the change makers of African descent in Canadian history, who shaped the fabric of Canadian society and impacted innovation in all sectors including science, engineering, medicine, public health, education, politics, and the arts.

The Anti-Racism and Cultural Diversity Office invites the University of Toronto and external community members to join their upcoming programming in recognition and celebration of Black History Month.
