Evergreen Community Tree Nursery at Downsview Park Program description
Evergreen has established a tree nursery in Downsview Park. The nursery will provide great opportunities for volunteers to learn hands-on about the work involved in growing seedlings (young trees). Training will educate participants about the benefits of urban restoration programs.
