Greater Victoria Green Team
The Greater Victoria Green Team is a new program in Victoria, and is part of the Green Teams of Canada charity (www.greenteamscanada.ca). We organize and run hands-on activities educating volunteers about local parks and ecosystems, local food production and environmental conservation. Some of our fun activities include: identifying and removing invasive plants, planting native plants and trees, picking up litter, shoreline cleanups, and volunteering at non-profit educational farms. Volunteers are taught about local ecology, natural history, and ecosystem restoration techniques through a hands-on experiential approach. By working together we will help restore habitat, increase biodiversity, assist stressed and endangered habitats, and create a lasting community legacy for years to come.
