Tree Planting & Maintenance Resources

Greenhouse Academy is an innovative not for profit organization that trains youth through experiential, real world experience in the operations/management of a greenhouse tree production firm. We are passionate about educating and training today’s youth practical skills that are essential in the workplace – enhancing their employment readiness. Youth are introduced to entrepreneurship, financial literacy, team building, marketing, sales, client/employer interactions, and daily routines of successful production. Greenhouse Academy provides focus on skills applicable in the horticulture, farming, landscaping and environmental sectors – sectors with desperate shortages of skilled labour. Within our > 55,000 square foot facility, youth participate in workshops, skills training and job awareness presentations. In the process of enriching youth and teaching skills we’ve grown thousands of seedlings for reforestation projects, and hope to enter contract growing services with Forests Ontario to help sustain our educational programs.
