Joseph Gibbons Park Tree Planting for Older Adults

Plant Tree with Us

Let’s work together to make the Hungry Hollow SNAP neighborhood more sustainable and ready for a changing climate.

Join us as we plant native trees and shrubs in Joseph Gibbons Park. Trees provide shade and natural cooling on hot summer days while also attracting local wildlife and adding beauty to your community. This event has been planned in partnership with the Town of Halton Hills and is designed for older adults (55 ) but is suitable for the whole family! Come out on a Spring day, meet your neighbors and plant some trees with us! This event is part of Hungry Hollow Sustainable Neighborhood Action Plan (SNAP).

  • For your own safety, please dress for the weather, wear long pants, socks, and closed-toed shoes.
  • Shovels will be provided. You can also bring your own.
  • Register for this event by May 12, 2022.
  • Online registration and COVID-19 screening are required.

As a community, we have the responsibility to honour, care for and respect all the Creation gives to provide us with life. This includes the land, water, air, fire, animals, plants and our ancestors.

The Anishinabek Peoples have utilized this land for millennia and we would like to acknowledge their direct descendants, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as the rightful caretakers and titleholders of this land upon which we live, work and conduct ourselves. We acknowledge our treaty relationship and responsibilities to both the land and these original peoples.

We also recognize that this land is rich in pre-contact history and customs, which includes the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee and since European contact, has and continues to become home for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. And it is in the spirit and intent of the Dish With One Spoon, wampum agreement whereby we will collectively care for and respect the land, water, animals and each other in the interests of peace and friendship and for the benefit of not only ourselves but of our future descendants.
