FruitShare Food Forest Tree Planting

Description: FruitShare Barrie volunteers gathered at Sunnidale Arboretum to expand Barrie's Food Forest by planting 20 new fruit trees and shrubs along with the planning stages of an herb garden. The Sunnidale food forest site is a celebration of our natural heritage and to celebrate Canada's 150th. In this space, you will find a variety of fruit trees like pears, apples, plums and cherries, as well as heritage edibles like Saskatoon berries and pawpaw. Growing food in public spaces encourages healthy eating, an active lifestyle and is a great way to get out and meet your neighbours. When the trees are mature, residents will be able to help themselves to any food that looks ready to eat. Just make sure to leave some for your neighbours! This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada
