Manor Park Edible Trees

On June 8th, 2019 the MPCA with generous support from Tree Canada and FedEx helped to deliver and plant edible trees throughout Manor Park at private residences and the Yule Manor Co-op. Tree Canada provided staff who brought expertise in tree planting and care, and FedEx staff provided delivery and planting help. Sheilagh McLean of the MPCA was the co-ordinator and she will be following up to ensure that recipients understand how to care for their tree during this first year.

There will be a celebration of the event which will be held during Manor Park Rock the Block on September 8th. Photos of the event can be viewed by clicking here.
