FOAG

As a REALTOR®, I believe in giving back to the community. I decided, when I started my career, to donate a portion of each sale to a community organization. I recently found a buyer for a condo at 130 Carlton-on-the-Park. In recognition of Allan Gardens, a civic and horticultural gem in the neighbourhood, I have made a donation from this sale to Friends of Allan Gardens.

 The Friends of Allan Gardens (FOAG) is a volunteer group composed of neighbours, civic leaders, and engaged city builders who are concerned with actively promoting the vitality of Allan Gardens. For most of its 150 years as a public horticultural garden, Allan Gardens has been a place of creativity, education, natural beauty (indoors and outdoors), and influence—a fountainhead for new ideas to be explored and demonstrated, ideas that go on to shape the surrounding city.

 In the midst of a burgeoning park movement in Toronto, FOAG believes that the need for a re-inspired Allan Gardens has never been greater. The group’s mission is to reinvigorate the park through creative strategies that will improve open spaces, nurture local culture, and attract a larger and more diverse group of users. Through our ongoing engagement and consultation work, it has become abundantly clear that Allan Gardens possesses enormous potential to re-emerge as a major cultural destination and lush green, natural oasis in the heart of the city.
