LEAF volunteers and partners celebrated National Tree Day in 2012 by removing constrictive and damaging paving stones surrounding 4 large Honey locust trees in the Junction. The tree bases were topped with rich soil and native plants. Local landscaping company, Green Gardeners, salvaged the stones and gravel and the Junction BIA agreed to water and maintain the new plantings.
The project was part of a province-wide Depave Paradise initiative led by Green Communities Canada. Similar projects continue to happen accross Canada!
