Community Planting Event – Sun, October 24

Thanks to a TD Park People Grant and public donations, Free the Fern is hosting a Community Planting Event on Sunday, October 24, 10am-12pm.

We will be planting hundreds of native plants (flowers, berries, and ferns) along the Red Alder Trail, just east of Kinross Creek Co-op (8001 Curate Wynd). Under towering Douglas Fir trees we will plant a native plant teaching garden for everyone to enjoy!

But we need your help to make it happen. Sign up to be a volunteer planter. Bring along family, friends, or neighbours to this community event. Everyone welcome!

Contact to sign up.
