What: LEAF volunteers and partners celebrated National Tree Day (Wednesday, September 26, 2012) by removing paving stones that were causing damage at the base of four large honey locust trees and replacing them with soil and native plants. Local landscaping company Green Gardeners salvaged the bricks and gravel that were removed and the Junction BIA promised to water and maintain the site. The project is part of a province-wide Depave Paradise initiative led by Green Communities Canada. There are five similar projects happening in other Ontario cities.
This community depave project is brought to you by LEAF in partnership with the Green Communities Foundation. The work has been carried out with the aid of grants from The Commission for Environmental Cooperation, The Metcalf Foundation, and TD Friends of the Environment Foundation
