Greenest City builds healthy, inclusive neighbourhoods through education and empowerment to preserve, protect and improve the environment. We are dedicated to growing good food, sharing good food and connecting people with community and the environment.
We work for environmental stewardship that connects communities.
Greenest City is a settler organization. We would like to acknowledge with respect and gratitude that we are on the traditional sacred territory of the Wyandot (Huron-Wendat) people, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Anishinabek Nation. Particularly, this area is the current treaty territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
This land is governed by The Dish with One Spoon Treaty, an agreement originally between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabek to peaceably share and care for this land and its resources. The treaty has since expanded to include all people who live on this land, meaning that we are all accountable for upholding the terms and spirit of the treaty.
Other historical treaties that still apply to this territory are the Two-Row Wampum Treaty and the Toronto Purchase Treaty No. 13. Treaties are ongoing, living documents that require our action and accountability. We are responsible for upholding these treaties as well as implementing the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Today, the meeting place of Toronto - from the Kanienʼkéha (Mohawk) word Tkaronto - remains the home of many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island. We are grateful for the opportunity to live and work on this land.
