Green Dreamers Give Thanks

October is one of those “bittersweet” months when the colourful and dramatic changes of Fall are at their most compelling and most nostalgic. The almost wistful affection that clings to this season begs for some “sweet” reminiscing and as Green Dreamers we tend to “recall” the season’s “happenings” in our local public lots.

Bridge to Bridge Tree Planting: Sun. Sept. 15, 2019

Bridge to Bridge Tree Planting: Sun. Sept. 15, 2019

The years 2015 - 2018 are the world’s hottest years since the recording of weather patterns began and now, according to NASA, 2019 is on track to be even hotter. Planting trees is the best and easiest way to counter global warming. In a recent Science article, researchers estimated that not only is tree-planting fifty times more effective than other forms of emissions combating but it also helps micro-climates or th,e areas around the planted trees, to be cooler and have a cleaner air.

Here in Old Ottawa South,  we have been planting trees on the patch of land on Canal Woods Terrace near Bronson Avenue for ten years. We do it to help clean the air in our neighbourhood and to protect our community from the noise and sight of the seven-lane monstrosity that Bronson has become.
