Although Communi-TREE will wrap up at the end of September, the fun will not stop when it comes to restoring the City by planting Hamilton’s first tiny forest using the Miyawaki Forest Method!

Green Venture and CanPlant have partnered up together, with the support from the City of Hamilton Forestry Department, to plant 300 trees at Windermere Basin Park. 

What is the Miyawaki Forest Method? Miyawaki Forests are small-scale densely planted native urban forests developed by Japanese botanist, Akira Miyawaki, to restore the degraded lands in urban cities. 

To learn more about Miyawaki Forests, check out this CanPlant blog by Heather Schibli! 

Come join us on Saturday, October 2nd, 2021 between 10:00 am to 3:00 pm to help plant Hamilton’s first tiny forests at Windermere Basin Park. Meet the tree team near the parking lot off of Eastport Drive (447 Eastport Dr, Hamilton, ON L8H 7S3).

There will be two slots available for volunteers to join, 10:00 am to 12:00pm and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Spots will be limited! Sign up early!

What to Bring / Wear: Be sure to wear closed toed shoes and long pants. Bring a reusable water bottle to refill at our water station. Please bring a face mask and your own garden gloves.
