"Creating our Home" Planting a tree - Mesachie Lake/Honeymoon Bay, BC, Canada
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 16:30 - 17:00
October 10th Cowichan Communities will Plant up to 100 Food Trees as Part of 350.org Global Work Party:
Transition Cowichan is being joined by Cowichan Green Community and their Fruit Save Program, the Cowichan Intercultural Society, OUR Ecovillage and other community groups to organize the planting of 100 food trees across 10 communities (up to 10 fruit or nut trees per community) in the Cowichan Region and a part of 350.org’s Global Work Party. Expanding our regional food forest will add to our local forest’s ability to sequester carbon and contribute to local food security. By working with Fruit Save we can ensure that the fruit and nuts from these trees are picked and shared between the pickers, land holders and the region’s food banks. As we plant, we will also celebrate our community.
