Sustainable Milton is launching a Trees for Heroes contest to honour three essential frontline workers in Milton.
The winners will receive a native plant or shrub planted by Dwayne Gilbert, a certified arborist on their property. If the winners don’t have property, or space for it, then a native plant will be placed on their balcony, garden, or stoop.
The group hopes the gesture will be a constant reminder of how appreciative of everything first responders have sacrificed, and done over the past year. To be eligible for nomination the recipient:
- Must be a resident of Milton.
- Must be an essential frontline worker whose services were required throughout the pandemic.
The deadline is June 15, 2021. The winners will be contacted by Dwayne Gilbert to arrange a site visit. To fill out the form visit the website
