This year has been a scorcher! With summer temperatures in Ontario rising to 30°C and feeling even hotter, we could all use the relief that shade provides.
Under threat of rain and thunderstorms, the LEAF Team got creative and pulled off our garden party, an annual celebration of those who have contributed their time and energy towards enhancing our urban forest! We had to make a few modifications due to the weather, which reminded us of how much we’ve learned about outdoor party planning these past few years.
Growing up in the heart of Toronto, I was lucky to be surrounded by trees. My neighborhood is now about 100 years old, and most of the trees in the area are at least half that age.
Trees are well known for being able to survive on just water and sunlight. But trees need food too, and that’s why we love composting!
The rain couldn’t stop us this past Saturday, as we attended the Junction Summer Solstice Festival with two goals to achieve!
