Great job at the Warden Woods Tree planting on October 14, 2017. Volunteers from Danforth Gardens Neighbourhood Association and the public planted 200 trees and bushes in the ravine at Warden Woods Park at Warden and St. Clair. Thanks to Julia and her team from Toronto Parks and Forestry for organizing the event. Stay tuned for another planting this spring.
