Danforth Volunteers

 

In 2015, with the support of the TD Green Streets Grant awarded by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and Tree Canada, LEAF had the opportunity to work closely with the City of Toronto and the Danforth community to develop an Adopt-a-Street-Tree Pilot Project for 142 new street trees planted between Woodbine and Victoria Park.

 

The pilot was a great success, and in 2016, LEAF continued to work with the Danforth community to further support this flourishing project with funding from Live Green Toronto, a program of the City of Toronto, and from the Canadian Tree Fund

 

The objective of the project was to foster a collaborative approach to protection and care of the city’s vulnerable street trees and to develop community tree care guidelines that could be replicated across Toronto. Project partners included Danforth East Community Association, Danforth Mosaic BIA, Danforth Village BIA and Danforth Village Residents Association. Support was also received from Councillor Mary Margaret McMahon and Councillor Janet Davis.
