Attention Geurilla Gardeners. Our local wildlife have suffered the loss of urban tree spaces and encroaching housing. But, we can give back by planting more trees in abandoned and public spaces. National Tree Day, July 28th, 2019 we will all meet at the park at the entrance to Buttaba coming out of Rathmines (Southampton x Clydebank) to plant endemic native trees and shrubs to help regenerate our neighbourhood that we are lucky to share with an array of beautiful birds and animals which are sadly suffering from urban sprawl. If you're unable to make it on the day, or wish to get stuck into it early, please contact Danielle and we can arrange something at a time that is mutually suitable. The tree count begins now, and ends on the 28th July. Let's see how many plants we can grow here in our community.
DATE & TIME
Sunday, 28 July 2019
10:00am to 2:00pm
3A Southampton Ave
Suitable for Children
Accessible for Disabled
Planting will be at the reserve on the Corner block just following the creek between Balmoral and Buttaba, on the corner of Clydebank Road and Southampton.
The #275 bus from Toronto/Wangi travels by this site. Bring your own chairs, water for yourself and if possible, extra for your trees. Parking is plentiful, and while there's a fairly busy road along one side, the site is suitable for children. A variety of trees and shrubs will be planted, and if you want to purchase and bring your own to plant, please confirm the species is endemic to this area. A second site is being considered, and I welcome additional sites to add to the program, as a lot of local trees need to be replaced for the wildlife in this area.
