“To me, this (the Aptus Teaching Landscape) is a very act of inclusion to a client population that is often marginalized. I strongly support the Aptus Teaching Landscape as a place of learning and mental health enrichment for all Torontonians.”
Lew Golding,
Manager of Adult Neurodevelopmental Services, CAMH

“The Aptus Teaching Landscape’s farming classes will solidify my son’s sense of responsibility to and appreciation for the environment. He will get the joy of seeing what a seed can turn into and a transferable skill which he can use into his lifetime. This is an awesome opportunity!”
