On Monday,Kingston Toyota  dropped by Loughborough Public School with a cheque from the Toyota Evergreen Learning Grounds Program. They were awarded $1100 toward making their playground a nicer place to play & learn.

Our General Manager, Chris Hirschfield presented the cheque to Alan Mac Donald. The Children were excited about the transformation of their space and the upcoming Summer holiday! Congratulations and thanks for the effort form the staff,parents and children!  

In 2000, Toyota Canada (TCI) and its Dealerships partnered with Evergreen to create Toyota-Evergreen Learning Grounds, a program that transforms barren Canadian school grounds into natural environments. By planting trees, shrubs and wildflowers, creating meadows, butterfly gardens and other theme areas on school grounds, learning opportunities literally come alive. Since then, Toyota-Evergreen Learning Grounds have distributed over $2.7 million in grants to 2,143 schools across Canada, helping the schools and their communities create outdoor classrooms, providing students with a healthy place to play, learn, and develop a genuine respect for nature. Thanks to this impactful partnership:

  • Over 1 million elementary and secondary students and 85,000 teachers have directly benefited from a greening project at their school;
  • Over 1,000 workshops have been held to train over 38,900 teachers, educators and designers in the design and implementation of outdoor classrooms and natural learning spaces;
  • 202 Toyota Dealerships across Canada have helped schools through funding or by lending a helping hand.

Together, Toyota Canada and Evergreen are fostering a new spirit of community involvement and environmental stewardship within the hearts and minds of Canada’s future; our children and youth.
