  • Rocky Point Sailing Association
    When most of the local boating club's members decided to venture into sailing large cruisers and racing, a small group of sailors remained loyal to their first love—sailing dinghies. This tightly knit crew formed Rocky Point Sailing Association, which today encompasses a fleet of about 40 boats and a staff of more than a dozen Sail Canada instructors. At their headquarters inside of Rocky Point Park's Old Mill Boathouse, the sailors instruct kids as young as 4 years up through adults in all levels of sailing. Rocky Point's team also extends membership privileges, such as the use of a restored Columbia 27 cruiser, the Orane. To indulge competitive spirits, RPSA's crew also maintains a race team.

  • Growing Chefs!
    During the course of a 3.5-month classroom-gardening program, chefs visit an elementary classroom every two weeks to help students plant and tend windowsill vegetable gardens. In the meantime, students play games and engage in other activities designed to teach them about plant growth, local agriculture, sustainability, and nutrition. Once it's time to harvest the vegetables, the chefs teach students how to cook nutritious meals with their homegrown goods. Growing Chef! organizers hope that after participating in the program, students will be more likely to eat healthful meals on their own based on what they've learned about growing and cooking healthy foods.

  • Environmental Youth Alliance
    Part of Copley Commons, the Heritage Orchard celebrates the generosity of Richard Copley, who developed the orchard and donated apple trees to the neighbourhood. The EYA aims to expand the Heritage Orchard’s natural splendour with perennial fruit crops by replanting a total of 16 apple trees at Heritage Orchard. Each apple tree costs $60 to plant, and the EYA is still in need of funds for the seeds, materials, transportation, and labour costs necessary to reach its 16-tree goal. The addition of apple trees to the commons will help beautify the neighbourhood, increase its organic-fruit supply, and help teach youth about sustainable-food production.

  • Power Of Movement
    Hosted by the Arthritis Research Foundation, Power of Movement fundraises for the foundation through yoga sessions held across the country. The event, which raised $10,000 during its inaugural fundraiser and now features 2,000 participants across Canada raising $1.6 million, began in 2005 when Dorna Chee found herself hospitalized after being diagnosed with lupus. As a yoga instructor, she turned to her breathing exercises to help manage pain and achieve mental calmness during her hospital stay. She experienced substantial benefits, and thought to share them with the world. She pitched an idea for a yoga-based event, with proceeds benefiting the Arthritis Research Foundation. Participants fundraise to support the foundation.and also take a Power of Movement yoga class, which vary by location.
