Parkdale Green Thumb Enterprises is a social purpose horticulture business that installs and maintains outdoor and indoor plants for Business Improvement Areas (BIAs), non-profit organizations, hospitals, the private sector, and community groups. We also provide groundskeeping services for the non-profit housing sector.
PGTE works with customers to design plantings for streetscapes (large planters, hanging baskets and small gardens) and office/institutional interiors. We can recommend plants to accent an office’s architectural features, and respond to particular lighting conditions.
In addition to design and installation, PGTE offers weekly plant maintenance—watering, pruning and fertilizing—to maintain the health of your plants. PGTE prides itself on the quality of its ongoing customer service. We would be happy to provide you with a quote for installation and/or maintenance of interior or exterior landscaping.
PGTE has a full-time Business Manager and Lead Hand and offers part-time employment to approximately 15 people.
It takes a community to create an Alternative Business and PGTE has benefited from the support of many community members and organizations including Working For Change and the Toronto Enterprise Fund.
