LEAF Event - a huge success!

We are happy to share that with the help of our close friends and neighbours, our tree planting event was a great success. Adam Smith from Yanch came down to meet media from the North York Mirror, Ming Pao Daily news, CBC Television and SNAP North York. We planted 2 Ironberry tress and 1 tulip tree, planted strategically to give maximum shade to our new home to minimize summer heat.
