Our first planting of fall 2018 went off without a hitch!  Over 120 volunteers came out to spend their beautiful Saturday planting 450 trees in this Byron park as a part of the official CN Ecoconnexions kick-off with Tree Canada!

We had some abnormal summer weather for both of these planting events, but our volunteers worked hard and got the job done!  Thank you to our neighbourhood volunteers and Stantec for joining us to completely transform this site!

Once again, we are so thrilled to work with London's Interfaith Community.  This was our 6th year completing an interfaith planting project in the City.  This team of volunteers worked hard, worked together, and successfully planted just under 400 native trees and shrubs to Halls Mills Park.

During the month of September, ReForest London held two planting events at Cantebury Park to add 415 native trees and shrubs!

Our planting event at Paul Haggis Park on June 9th was a huge success!
