Program Specific Information

  • dress in layers (e.g. a T-shirt and a sweater /sweatshirt) because the greenhouse is often warm
  • the greenhouse is not like a classoom - in order to reach the plants activities are often completed while standing or walking
  • bring a bottle of water - no drinking fountains at the Greenhouse
  • all program materials are provided
2. Students need two TTC tickets: one to get to the program and one to return to school.
