On Community Hubs  is a two-part learning series organized by the Parkdale Neighbourhood Land Trust, the Parkdale People’s Economy, and the Parkdale Residents Association. The learning series will lead into action-oriented community-based workshops throughout the summer to collectively develop visions for the Parkdale Community Hub.
