Green Squad


In busy downtown Toronto, it can be hard for Malik to find some green space to start his own garden. Luckily, the Green Squad is here to help! Shakira finds an old cabinet in a thrift store and uses it to help declutter Malik's sunroom. Eric takes Malik to the community garden to learn about native plant species with garden expert Robyn, then head back to the apartment to plant some things that will thrive indoors! Lisa & little brother Adrien create a watering schedule, so Malik can take proper care of his brand new garden. Lisa shows Malik a new recipe using food he can grow at home - lettuce tacos! She also teaches him how to cut down on food waste by regrowing vegetables from old food scraps. Malik says goodbye to the Squad, and can't wait to work on his green paradise in the city.
