Help Green13 save the thirsty trees!
Help water-parched trees in Vine Ave. Park! And, we are also tackling the parched, stressed street trees along Dundas St. W. in the vicinity of Pacific Ave. We need help with this, and hope local people will join us. You can water trees on your own, of course — really, we just need to open our eyes to see the living things that are suffering in this drought, and it’s within our reach to tend to them.
Here are two scheduled watering sessions coming up:
• Fri., Aug. 12 (call for time and place) on Dundas St. W. — We have a wagon with a rain barrel plunked on top. We use watering cans to water the trees. If we have more people, we can water more trees. It’s too hot out there for long stints.
• Sun., Aug. 14, 2 pm in Vine Ave. Park.
For other times or ways to help, call Rita 416-766-6331, and/or see http://green13toronto.org/ under Upcoming Events in the left sidebar. We are hoping to plan a schedule for volunteers to water and help save our trees throughout this hot summer. We’re also happy to sign for community hours for high school students who volunteer.
Sorauren Park Town Square Screenings – Aug. 13 and 20
Sat., Aug. 13 – The 1975 classic Jaws will light up the big screen at the Sat., Aug. 13 Sorauren Outdoor Movie event on the park’s Town Square at 8:30 p.m. Rated PG, the shark story is a little scary, especially for the little ones, but you probably knew that already. IMDB’s review page publishes a content advisory for parents. Jaws will be preceded by a special screening of La Maisonette, a short film produced by filmmakers who live in the neighbourhood. Support our local artists!
Sat., Aug. 20 – Live screening of The Tragically Hip: A National Celebration, in association with CBC Music.
The Sorauren Outdoor Movie Series is presented by the non-profit Friends of Sorauren Park and its sponsors. Pass-the-hat donations will be accepted at the screening to help cover the costs of licensing, movie equipment and other projects, including the forthcoming bake oven for the park.
