On October 25, 2013, Windsor Residence Inc., in partnership with the Inn of Windsor will build five community gardens designed for Transitional Youth with a $4,500 grant received from The Home Depot Canada Foundation.

Youth will be responsible to build, maintain and harvest the gardens located on the Windsor Residence property.

Organizers say that the gardens will allow youth to strengthen responsibility and assist in teaching the skills needed to transition to independence. The youth will build relationships by sharing their crop with low-income and at risk individuals in their neighbourhoods. They will learn the importance of teamwork and reap the benefits of growing their own organic herbs and vegetables.

Both the Inn of Windsor and Windsor Residence work with at risk youth in the community and provide temporary housing and skills courses to prepare these youth for independence.
