    Good things come in trees

    Eastside Tree Night hosted by the Grandview Garden Club

    Watch the 1987 Oscar-winning animated short, “The Man Who Planted Trees” that tells story of one shepherd’s long and successful singlehanded effort to re-forest a desolate valley, presented by Vancouver Film School classical animation instructor Keith Blackmore. Then hear arborist David Tracey, executive director of Tree City, talk about our human relationship with trees. Our primate ancestors knew trees intimately as their homes, protectors and providers. We climbed down to evolve as humans but in many ways we never left. Trees are still found at the heart of religion, myth, science and story. And learn about gardening opportunities to get involved with gardening initiatives in your neighbourhood through the work of the Grandview Garden Club!
