DePave Paradise

Today is National Tree Day so I thought I’d share some good news I just received this morning from LEAF an amazing not-for-profit organization dedicated to the protection and improvement of the urban forest

LEAF will be celebrating National Tree Day by removing paving stones that are currently causing damage at the base of four large honey locust trees and replacing them with soil and native plants.

This project is happening right in my own neighbourhood at the Southwest corner of Pacific Avenue and Dundas Avenue West in the Junction, Toronto.

Local landscaping company Green Gardeners will be salvaging and reusing the bricks and gravel that are removed and the Junction BIA will be watering and maintaining the site.

For more information, check out the province-wide Depave Paradise initiative led by Green Communities Canada or you can listen to Jessica Piskorowski. one of the coordinators of “De-pave Junction” on CBC Metro Morning.
