Our Story

Parkdale Green Thumb Enterprises (PGTE) is an award-winning Eco-Landscaping social enterprise operated by Working for Change. PGTE’s first contract in 2001 was with the Parkdale Village Business Improvement Area. 18 years later, we offer climate change responsive plant maintenance, landscaping and streetscaping services to a wide range of commercial clients. Our specialty is serving Business Improvement Areas. Dundas West, Roncesvalles, Parkdale Village and College Promenade BIAs are just a few of our happy clients. In addition, we also offer services to non-profit organizations, hospitals and community organizations.
