“We are thrilled with the level of support TD Charitable foundation is providing for this innovative project,” states Peter Evers, Riverbend President and CEO. “Visits to the farm allow children with behavioral health issues to have a non-competitive educational experience in a warm and inviting agricultural setting.

It’s a fantastic opportunity and one that we appreciate immensely.”
