“One of this Council’s priorities is to make Brampton a Green City, and Earth Day is a great opportunity to engage with our community and spread awareness about environmental protection,” said Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown. “I encourage everyone, especially our youth, to play a part in building a greener future. Environmental initiatives, such as tree plantings, foster a sense of responsibility and commitment to stewardship and conservation.”
While no prior experience is needed for planting the trees, there are limited spots available. The event will take place at at Norton Park, with barbeque served after the trees are planted.
