Mulch, talk, present with Friends of Regent Park, CRC at 40 Oaks, LEAF and Cabbagetown ReLEAF

regent-park-treeSubmitted by cabbagetownreleaf.org : On October 17, 2015, a cool fall day, Friends of Regent, CRC at 40 Oaks, LEAF and Cabbagetown ReLEAF brought together friends, family and neighbours from Regent Park and beyond for the launch of the adopt-a-park-tree program. In 2014, 207 trees were planted in the new Big Park. In order for these trees to survive they need people to take care of them; these trees need to be mulched and watered.

 
Cabbagetown ReLEAF’s Tree Stewards, Fai Udom and Emma Thurston, raised awareness about the importance of community engagement and habitat connectivity during the LEAF Regent Park tree tour. A generous donation from Mark Cullen; two mulching forks were presented by Cabbagetown ReLEAF to Friends of Regent Park.

 
Thanks to Theri Kay and LEAF’s Young Urban Forest Leaders for their hard work in making the adopt-a-park-tree launch and Regent Park tree tour a success. Cabbagetown ReLEAF was honored to be a part of it.

 
Let’s get started on caring for our trees in all our parks and beyond!
