~ a growing and changing community
It’s happening! and I am so excited! New to the Rockcliffe-Smythe neighbourhood as of Summer 2016, Elissa Riddell has taken the lead on this event which has been a lot of planning for the past 2 months and May 13th is coming fast.
You can order up to 2 Trees of the same species. ( Service Berry (shrub), White Cedar (shrub), Red Maple,Eastern White Pine,Sugar Maple and Red Oak.)
In partnership with Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation and the #EVERYTREECOUNTS campaign there will be 150 FREE trees to give away as part of the celebrations of Canada’s Birthday of turning 150 yrs old. #CANADA150) however as of this blog post 67 trees are already spoken for.
Sign up SOON! and show up on the day for a 15 minute demonstration on how to plant and take care of your FREE tree(s). There is parking and it is also ttc accessible.The potted tree is about 3 feet in height so you shouldn’t have a problem carrying it.
There will also be free mulch to take away for your tree too:)
AND There will also be a raffle draw and a PWYC bike tune up on site.
A special shout out and big THANK YOU! to real estate agent, Jasbir Parmar
