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.
On Saturday, May 26th we returned to Bridgeview Cordone Park to plant an additional 150 native trees and shrubs in an effort to enhance Richmond Hill’s Urban Forest.
