On October 13th, students and teachers from Kettle Lakes Public School returned to Grovewood Park, Richmond Hill to plant trees and tend to the trees and shrubs they planted the previous year.
The benefits of trees are countless, including being a great source of pollen and nectar to our native bees. Yet a tree may not be suitable for everyone. If you’re interested in helping our bees thrive but don’t have space for a tree, consider planting shrubs instead! They are perfect for smaller spaces and come with an array of benefits!

Fall marks the time when trees and shrubs begin their sleepy fall into winter. But certain plants put on a stunning display before they go. Here, we highlight four native shrubs, available through our Backyard Tree Planting Program, that are particularly note-worthy in the fall season.
The trees along Danforth Avenue have been experiencing a fresh new lease on life thanks to the local residents and businesses taking part in an Adopt-a-Street-Tree Project. Their tending and care has given these trees the attention they need to establish themselves and grow for years to come.
