meeting treeWe were honoured to be part of the Emancipation Day celebration at Westminster Ponds, and have the opportunity to give out free trees at a Tree Depot during the event. After a hike to the Meeting Tree, which was a meeting spot in the Underground Railroad, attendees of the events and the public could take home a tree as a reminder of this important event in our city’s, and our country’s, history. The Depot was so popular that we gave away all 52 trees in only 45 minutes!

Thanks also goes out to the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Richard and Beryl Ivey Fund of the London Community Foundation, TreeMe, London Life and the City of London for being lead funders on this project.
