On behalf of Green Cities Foundation, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you who joined us for the remarkable #GreenMyCity project on Barton Street. To the dedicated group of staff from St. Matthew’s House and all of the eager volunteers, your unwavering support, dedication, and hard work have contributed immensely to the success of this initiative.

We are deeply appreciative of the tireless efforts put forth by our enthusiastic volunteers, local community members, and partner organizations who came together with a shared vision of transforming Barton Street into a green and vibrant urban space. Thanks to your involvement, we have not only enhanced the aesthetic appeal of the street but also provided numerous environmental benefits. Our collective efforts have improved air quality, promoted biodiversity, mitigated urban heat, and created a welcoming space for residents to connect with nature. Together, we have shown that small actions can lead to significant change, and that by working together, we can build a brighter and more sustainable future for all.

We extend our sincere gratitude to our sponsor RBC Insurance, the Federal Economic Development Agency of Southern Ontario, and the Hamilton Community Foundation for their support. Special thanks to our Project Lead, Peter Guinane, and our dedicated staff for their invaluable coordination since 2019. We also appreciate the contributions of the companies who generously donated their time and materials to make this project a reality plus the countless volunteers from the community.
