Talkin' Trash With UHN

Freerange, organic, green healthcare ideas

Earth Week

Thanks for coming!!!! Our local Earth Week Lobby Booths were the most interactive yet! Hundreds of people learned how you can help fight climate change, about green teams at UHN, and recycling rules. We gave away so many free honeybee-friendly seeds, so don’t forget to plant yours and bring those pollinators back in action!

Have a look at our Photo Album and you may see you and your friends:
