WE DIG GREY BRUCE!

In the world of construction, excavation contractors do much more than haul dirt around: site preparation, grading, trenching and many other soil-related tasks. Products include Aggregate, Top Soil, Asphalt, Landscape Rocks. MacDonnell Excavating is assisting NeighbourWoods North with the Welcoming Garden and the Healing Path, donating time, labour  & equipment.

Michael & Bryan Nurton

Volunteers of the Month

NeighbourWoods North is lucky to have the assistance of these two very busy brothers.  Bryan and Michael heard about NN through Bryan's wife who had been a colleague of NN vice-president Gord Edwards. Working for HydroOne on the Forestry Team means Bryan and Michael are able to provide NN with tons of wood chips to use in planting trees. They provided leadership for the East Ridge Project in keeping with their HydroOne volunteer work.  In addition to volunteering with NN, the brothers also volunteer as coaches and for trail maintenance with the Bruce Trail Club.

Somehow with all that volunteering they manage to be active fathers to their kids, involved in girl guides, hockey and music.  When not volunteering, they enjoy camping, fishing, and home gardening.  Thank you Bryan and Michael for all you do.
