Media Advisory - St. Lawrence community plants Butterfly Garden in David Crombie Park
  
Members of the St. Lawrence community are planting a garden in David Crombie Park that will attract butterflies, brighten up their community, and provide neighbourhood children and youth with the opportunity to engage in hands-on gardening activities that foster an appreciation for the natural environment.

The Butterfly Garden, designed by Dan O’Leary and Ewa Jarmicka, who live in the neighbourhood, will feature native plants, including wildflowers, shrubs and perennials.

The planting will be followed by greetings from Councillor Pam McConnell (Ward 28 Toronto Centre-Rosedale), refreshments and entertainment.

Date: Saturday, September 16
Time: 1 to 4 p.m. (official remarks at 3 p.m.)
Place: David Crombie Park, Berkeley St. and The Esplanade

The Butterfly Garden is a joint initiative between Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, smartliving St. Lawrence, Kidsplay and YouthOutlook (KPYO), and was made possible with a grant from the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation, a not-for-profit organization working to enhance, preserve and restore Toronto’s parks and trees for the enjoyment of the present generation, and as a legacy for future generations.

For public information, call smartliving St. Lawrence at 416-488-3966.
