Contribute to our

Legacy Tree Initiative

Support tree planting projects at the Assiniboine Food Forest. We need to plant food-producing trees and shrubs in the Legacy Orchard, and coniferous and deciduous trees along our trail systems. Our Legacy Tree Initiative aims to provide community members the opportunity to contribute to these efforts by purchasing a tree that will be planted on the AFFI landscape. The contribution of a tree to be planted at Assiniboine Food Forest is an excellent way to celebrate new life or honour a life well-spent (memorial). It also makes a great birthday or holiday gift for the “tree-huggers” in your life.

 

Local Partners

We have partnered with our neighbours at The Green Spot to source fruit trees such as apple, pear, plum, cherry for our Legacy Orchard; and/or other tree types such as maple, oak, spruce, pine to be planted on along our trail systems.

Local Artist Mireille Desilets is also gracing this initiative with her amazing talents, and has created a lovely keepsake card specifically for this campaign! When community members purchase a tree, they will receive a "keepsake" card and inside will be a certificate of contribution. This little note will honour the person in whose name the tree was purchased.

Keeping Track

Tree plantings will occur several times throughout the warmer seasons each year. (For contributions made throughout the winter season, your special tree will be planted in the spring.) Once your Legacy Tree is in the ground, the Assiniboine Food Forest will place a land marker at the tree, establish and track permanent GPS coordination, and provide ongoing care and maintenance for your special tree.
