Community Stewardship 2008!

Summer Stewardship season 2008. Ahhhh... even my trowel is smiling. All I can say is, if you haven't done it, do it! It's a blast and a great way to learn about native plants, naturalization, restoration and local ecology.

The best way to get in on it? Come out to the City of Toronto's Community Stewardship program's Orientation night Wednesday April 30th 2008, 7:PM at Riverdale Farm.

Lots of info, resources and introductions to stewardship sites across all 6 watersheds in the GTA (many stewardship groups are partnered with this program). To register for Orientation night, or if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to call Cheryl Post at 416-392-LEAF or email her at greentoronto@toronto.ca.

If you're reading this after April 30th 2008, or if you can't make it to orientation, no problem! Just give Cheryl a call and she’ll hook-you-up with sites in your area.
