Saturday, October 27th, Grey Bruce Health Services, the community group NeighbourWoods North and volunteer tree planters gathered to unveil a plaque at the Owen Sound Regional Hospital to commemorate and recognize the many individuals and organizations who helped turn a seven-acre empty field into an urban forest. Lloyd Lewis of NeighbourWoods North and Dr. Gord Edwards approached GBHS with a multi-year plan to naturalize the Owen Sound Regional Hospital property less than a year ago, to secure the funds and thousands of trees, organize hundreds of volunteers to plant, mulch, weed and water the trees which they succeeded in doing.
This project is phase one of NeighbourWoods North’s multi-year plan to naturalize the hospital grounds, which includes a network of pathways in the new forest for residents, visitors and patients.
