When September 26, 2021 at 2:30pm 3 hrs

Over the past 7 years, people of many faiths have come together to plant nearly 2,000 trees and shrubs in London. Tree planting is fun and accessible for people of all ages, and a positive way for us to put our faith to work around a shared belief in caring for the earth.

This year, join us as we plant over 250 native trees and shrubs at a local park. We will also be planting special trees in honour of the Afzaal family, who were tragically killed earlier this year.

There will also be a ReForest London Tree Giveaway, where you can get a free tree to plant in your yard. Donations are welcome!
