Celebrating Sustainable Neighbourhoods
The Celebrating Sustainable Neighbourhoods (CSN) program is a City of Pickering initiative that focuses on connecting communities
with activities that make Pickering a better place, environmentally, socially and economically.
SoRo used CSN to launch our neighbourhood initiatives in 2013.
Each year the City invites participating community groups to share their efforts. The participating groups vote amongst themselves to choose which group will be awarded $10,000 for a community enhancing infrastructure project
In 2018, SoRo Good Neighbours was the chosen recipient and we were thrilled to add more seating in Rick Hull Park as well as many more native trees and an educational sign for our pollinator garden.
The 2018 unveiling ceremony included speeches about the importance of community, diversity, and kindness.
