Gibbons Park with Amway

Project type: 
Park Naturalization
Year: 
2012
Season: 
Fall
Location: 
Northwest

On a beautiful fall morning, forty volunteers added 380 trees and shrubs to Gibbons Park, extending a naturalized area. The weather was absolutely perfect for tree planting, and although we didn't have as many volunteers as we usually do, all the volunteers worked very hard.

Amway Canada is celebrating 50 years in Canada this week, and they are planting 500 trees in total to celebrate. Thank you to Amway, who both sponsored the planting and recruited employees and their families to help with the planting. We appreciate your support of the Million Tree Challenge and your investment in the future of the Forest City!

Special thanks also to Gary and Justin, who dug hundreds of holes to make tree planting easier. We also thank Lilka, Gary, Jim, and Valdemar, who helped as tree gurus. Thanks also to the City of London for providing woodchips for the project and staff support to help us plan!
