What a spring-like spring we've been having -- sudden changeable weather. Ah well, we're Torontonians and used to it, right?
We're gearing up for the 2013 season for the Adopt A Tree program and after tallying up who's moved away and/or no longer able to volunteer the hours, there are 25 (Update: 13) young trees needing adopters.
This number includes new adopters for the lovely new grove of four Sakura Cherry trees that appeared last fall at the top of the north end of the bowl. Thrilled to report that there are also four new Sakura Cherry trees in the south end of the park which replace four destroyed by vandals in previous years. And didn't they all look wonderful in bloom last week.
The watering jugs and buggies and hoses will be deployed before the end of the month, and we're organising a mulch delivery (thanks to our Parks Supervisor and team) for the weekend of May 25th. Adopters get your gardening gloves ready for the annual mulching of your tree!
If you're interested in joining our brigade of volunteers and adopting one of the 25 "orphans" please contact Michaelle using the contact form.
