Community Tree Fest and Native Tree Sale

October 19, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The HUB will be hosting a native tree sale in support of youth mental wellness.  Return the Landscape, Maajiigin Gumig (Aamjiwnaang First Nations’ native plant greenhouse), the HUB and the Unitarian Fellowship of Sarnia and Port Huron have joined forces to grow a diverse selection of locally sourced native trees.

Together, the above organizations are starting a Teenage Tree Program for youth to collect seeds, care and grow tree saplings for fundraising.  Through this eco-fundraiser, local youth will have an opportunity to re-connect with nature while promoting the re-forestation of our community.

We live in the most “tree rich” region of Canada.  We have over 70 species in our local Carolinian zone ecosystem.  https://caroliniancanada.ca/legacy/FactSheets_CCUniqueness.htm.

Reforestation is considered to be one of the top 10 most effective strategies to address climate change.  Not only is carbon sequestered but biodiversity is protected.

Trees for sale at this event will be Carolinian species with information tables and presentations on the value of native trees.  People can either purchase native tree saplings for their yard and/or sponsor trees for a community park planting day on Sunday, November 2nd.

Join us for a tour of the HUB, a safe space with support services for youth ages 16 to 24.  The HUB is operated by Sarnia-Lambton Rebound with at least 31 community agencies collaborating to co-create youth services and programs.  The HUB will be open for a tour as well as the tree sales.  Proceeds from the sale will be invested in the HUB, the native plant greenhouse and local reforestation efforts.

In addition, people can learn more about the Teenage Tree Program as we continue developing this eco-fundraiser for Sarnia-Lambton.

A barbeque and refreshments will be offered.
