This year's Western Fair was another wonderful opportunity to educate Londoners about the Million Tree Challenge and feature the giving away of 2000 native tree seedlings, many sponsored by our generous MTC Partners.Jason & Rhonda at Western Fair

For ten days, from September 11th until the 20th, thousands of people came through the Progress Building and past our booth which was in a higher traffic area this year. Many people took a baby native tree and promised to plant it on their property and register it in London’s Million Tree Challenge.

This year’s seedling sponsors were: CLC Tree Services, TYDAN Landscape Design Inc., Walker Construction, Cornerstone Architecture and Wild Craft Permaculture. Thank you so much for being a seedling sponsor. It is a great way to show your support and get your name in front of so many people who care about a greener London.
Thank you to our Seedling Sponsors!

"We are happy to be a part of reforesting this beautiful city one tree at a time" said Anne Marie Rancourt of TYDAN Landscape Design Inc. "Providing these small specimen trees to homeowners to enjoy when they are grown is a really good thing."

"Sponsoring the ReForest London seedling giveaway is a great fit for Wild Craft Permaculture," said owner Jessica Robertson. "It is in line with our company and personal values and it gets our name out to people who care about trees."

Again this year, ReForest London’s volunteers stepped up to work at the booth with 66 volunteers donating 208 volunteer hours. We couldn’t do it without you and your time commitment and passion - THANK YOU!

Other than the seedling giveaway – which is the most popular aspect of our Fair booth – we offered a display of many different native trees with information about each, colouring pages for the kids (and parents could sit and have a brief rest while their little ones coloured), and there was also a draw for some I Dig Trees t-shirts.sponsor signage

Big thanks to the Western Fair for the booth space and to our seedling sponsors for supporting the Million Tree Challenge.

If being a tree or seedling sponsor is a Partner activity of interest to you, then please let us know so we can put you down for next year’s Fair or other outreach events throughout spring and fall. For as little as $200 you can help get more trees planted in people's yards across London. If you received a free tree at the Western Fair this year and have not yet registered it, please do so now at milliontrees.ca.
