Park People is working with LEAF (Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests) and Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) to plant 80 new trees on three TCHC properties. The first year of this planting and stewardship initiative will serve as a pilot project with the goal of expanding to other TCHC communities in the future. A key component of Park People's role in the project is to engage tenants in the planting and stewardship of the trees.
TCHC communities offer significant plantable areas. They are also areas of need, since many ash trees have been removed due to the invasive pest emerald ash borer.
