Green Venture and CanPlant have partnered up together, with the support from the City of Hamilton Forestry Department, to plant a tiny forest 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.

Come join us on Thursday, October 7 between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm 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).
You can stay for the full time or just come by over the three hours to help plant the rest of the tiny forest!
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.
