Best part of volunteering with GNN

I’m Juhi & I’m a purposeful person! ūüôā¬†

At the cusp of COVID-19 lockdowns my husband, our dog, and I moved to Toronto – one of the most walkable cities in the world! As I breathed the clean March air and walked my dog through the greenest patches she’s ever been on, I wanted to do something in return for nature. Luckily, GNN was looking for someone with my skillset! I’m so glad we found each other, because amidst a worldwide pandemic and a year of lockdown, I found “my people.” Purposeful, positive, and action-oriented. I joined for the environment but I show-up for the people.¬†

In the past 18 months – I’ve helped organize the largest online event of my life – a four-week long EcoFair 2020, I’ve grown my own basil and tomatoes, canoed the¬†Humber river twice, and had so much fun along¬†the way!

Personal fun fact

I love Christmas so much I got married on the date.
