Kaitlin, Brad, and Victoria were absolutely thrilled that over 85 volunteers came out to help increase woodland cover in their neighbourhood! It was our biggest planting of the year so far with nearly 100 volunteers and 400 trees!

Our volunteers were very excited about the planting opportunity:

"We're here from London Central School as a leadership retreat, to try and inspire younger kids to take initiative" - Natasha Lee, Mayuri Sothynatham

"I love being outdoors and planting trees. I hope I get a sycamore tree for my backyard on my birthday" - Jacklyn Shaw

"I'm at this planting because it's just a great experience for me and my kids" - Mohammad Makki

Thank you everyone for all of your help and to Big Brothers Big Sisters, Libro, and Fanshawe for bringing such awesome groups!

Thank you to Ward 8 Councillor Paul Hubert for coming out to this event and to the City of London`s Park in Every Ward Project, the Ontario150 Community Celebration Program, and TD Friends of the Environment for funding this project.
