The Quinte West Community Greenhouse is a community-driven, volunteer-run greenhouse located on city property at 8 Meyers St. Trenton. This 100 ft. long, 20 ft. wide professional greenhouse is run by a handful of community volunteers who start the growing season 'under plastic' in March. The greenhouse provides fresh produce to the Trenton Care and Share Food bank, Salvation Army and Community Partners for Success. These groups serve our produce to more than 8,000 low-income earners in our community during the greenhouse-growing season, between mid-May and mid-October. If you're interested in becoming a volunteer with the Community Greenhouse, or if you would like more information, please Contact Us.
Note: There is a municipal by-law that prohibits smoking within 25.0 metres surrounding playground equipment and playing fields within playground parks owned and operated by the City of Quinte West.
The City of Quinte West has developed an Adopt-A-Park/Adopt-A-Roadway Program to help beautify our roadsides and parkland.
How the Program Works. City parks, roadways, and greenbelt areas can be 'adopted' by youth clubs, neighbourhood groups, schools, or other organizations. These groups plan and carry out environmental activities within their adopted parks, in cooperation with City staff.
Their volunteer work can be augmented by funds from local sponsors to pay for materials and equipment. Plaques will be mounted at the entrance of each park or along the roadway identifying the adoptee group.
Objectives. The objectives of the project are to:
- create the opportunity for citizens to help the environment
- build community pride and a sense of ownership in our parkland and roadways
- develop opportunities for youth to learn about the environment
- share the responsibility for a clean community with residents
- reduce litter and associated costs of cleanup
- provide a means for service clubs and corporate sponsors to contribute towards local environmental projects
