Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests
LEAF is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the urban forest. We offer programs that help you plant, care and give.
Spring is a great time to plant trees, but did you know that fall is equally as great? The fall season offers unique and ideal weather conditions that help newly-planted trees adjust and thrive in their new environments.
Every summer, LEAF hosts a one-of-a-kind urban forest experience for City of Toronto day campers. The campers, ages six through 12, join our staff at Riverdale Park East and partake in a series of fun and interactive activities with the aim of educating the kids on the value of the urban forest around us. This year, I was lucky enough to join the Junior Urban Forest Rangers (JUFR) for a day and see the action in person!
Flower arrangements are not only great ways to brighten up your kitchen table or work desk, they’re also an attractive way to add interest and warmth to any party or social gathering. Inspired by the native flower arrangements seen at our annual garden party, we share some of our favourite species to use to curate your very own (and very instagrammable) native flower arrangements.
Join us on September 17 for a guided tree tour through the Lake Wilcox Park and discover the natural history of the park through its native tree species!
Join us on September 25th and celebrating National Tree Day by greening the community!
