Environmental Award Given to Our Temple!

3:33:00 AM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav)

On Saturday, March 11, 2017, Faith and the Common Good hosted their Annual Forum at the University of Toronto's Multi-Faith Centre.  The theme of the Annual Forum was, "Exploring the Future of Sacred Space: The Practical and Spiritual".  Various informative presentations were given and our temple also had a chance to present a recent Farmer's Market project that we undertook.

Later during the event, our temple was announced as the winner of the 2016 Greening Sacred Spaces Award.  We were selected as winners for: (1) re insulating and installing a new roof on our building, (2) changing the majority of the light bulbs in our building to LED lights, and (3) hosting a mini-farmer's market for the neighbours.

Our Krsna Fun School (Sunday School) also hosted a member of Faith and the Common Good who taught our children about the importance of living in a way that respects Mother Earth!
