Oakridge Tree Depot - Oct 21

Project type: 
Neighbourhood Re-Leaf

oakridge depotThe last weekend of the fall event season had the Neighbourhood ReLeaf team buzzing, and the community seemed just as excited! The last regular Tree Depot event was held on Saturday at Oakridge Secondary School with help from the school’s Environmental Team. In addition to the trees set up by the NRL team, the students set up their own table to sell delicious baked goods and homemade bath products to raise money for their initiatives around the school. As all the sweet smelling and leafy goodies were being set up, a line was already forming of residents eager to take a tree home with them.


With a very large rush in the beginning of the event, the NRL team along with two Tree Specialists and two volunteers from the Environmental Team helped 68 households pick out the perfect tree, with 195 trees being given out. This was a great way to end of the regular season events strong and green, much like the trees! Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this event a great success!


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.
