A how-to guide to spread the word and promote your own Project Green Bloc
Build a community garden
Build your own garden with neighbours to grow your own veggies. This Food Gardening Guide (PDF) was created for schools to use in their greening projects but it's a valuable, comprehensive tool for anyone looking to start an outdoor garden.
Check out Hives for Humanity to find out how you can bring bees to your community.
Design a street mural
Create and paint a mural masterpiece with your neighbours as a reminder of your community initiative.
Build a community bulletin board
Post notes and signs on the board to keep each other informed of community initiatives.
Start a “free store”
Build a space or find an existing one where people can put items they no longer use so that others can take them for free.
Implement a recycling option
If your block, apartment or complex doesn’t already recycle certain items (like batteries), get motivated neighbours to alternate taking recycling to the depot or transfer station.
