2. Spring Park Day - June 1st, 10am to 1pm

Our annual love-in for the park -- plantings, mulchings, and a time to get together. 

Come spend a few hours gardening and planting and helping to care for the park, or drop by for a shorter time to lend a hand or sign up to water a tree or the Greenhouse beds this summer.

More deets soon!

3. Wanted: new Adopt a Tree Coordinator

Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park's long-time Adopt A Tree coordinator is no longer living close to the park and has her eye on a parkette to start another Adopt a Tree (AAT) program in -- so she is looking for a new tree-park-lover to take over as FoTBP AAT Coordinator.  It's a volunteer position.

Could that be you?

Or perhaps you and a few friends?

The FoTBP AAT program was started in 2006 by Jenna Hofbauer and Michaelle took over as its Coordinator in spring 2008.  It's a true grass-roots initiative which continues to be run by volunteer neighbors of the park who want to ensure the sapling trees have a  fighting chance of surviving.

It's such a great idea that it's been taken up by many others around the city including Park People which has just launched it as "Adopt a Park Tree". 

Congratulations to all of us for being such great role-models!

What's involved?  The basics are liasing with the our Park Supervisor about the water sources, installing buggies/jugs/locks in spring and removing them in the fall, finding neighborhood volunteers to adopt new saplings for four years, and showing them what needs to be done. Occasional requests to speak to other groups or to the media about the program (oh la la).

A great way to give back to the park, and to be involved with the tree planting plans for the future.

If you are interested -- or think you might be -- don't hesitate to contact Michaelle at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
