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!
On June 19, the LEAF office staff and friends took a trip to the Humber River. There, we met up with Alan Colley of Aboriginal Eco Tours. We took part in a smudging ceremony and took a moment to appreciate the urban forest in a way that was completely new to many of us.
On Saturday, June 16th we returned to Leslie Grove Park for the annual Leslieville Tree Festival presented by LEAF, Councillor Paula Fletcher, Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, and the Leslieville BIA.
