GreenStar Enterprise Community Garden is a youth led initiative designed to encourage and engage Black Canadian youth and other minority to participate in self-employment opportunities around nutrition, healthy food, and physical activities.
The GSE project intends to build a youth advocacy group for increased access to healthy eating and physical activities in their community. The purpose of involving youth is primarily to engage them as effective agents of change by contributing their unique perspectives and desires to take action.
In addition, this initiative also serves as an introduction and inspiration for the youth to consider social entrepreneurship and leadership in the fields of environment and healthy living.
