Reclaiming Nature with Urban Forestry
October Planting Spree
a Big Success
So many people turned out to help we were able to finish early. Thank you to all the volunteer regulars and to the 30 new volunteers.
We planted 425 trees and shrubs - about 125 large trees and 300 smaller ones. We wrapped, mulched and staked trees both along the Healing Path and in the Forest of Hope & Healing.
Plus, the Meadow crew worked hard, laying down the plastic in preparation for next springs plantings. Over the winter, the plastic will not allow light in and help to kill off the weeds and grass to make it easier to plant meadow flowers next spring. Get ready!
Much of the work this fall was made possible with the financial support of the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and fundraising efforts headed by volunteers Lynda and Paul Matthies.
