Projects and Activities

Recent Trust Fund activities include:

  • An annual plant and compost sale in Goderich. The 2013 sale was held on May 5th and raised over $1,400. A special thank you is extended to Steele Wool Farm for assisting with the compost. In the afternoon the Trust Fund partnered with Maitland Trail Association to host a guided walk through the Maitland Woods. Visitors were able to see spring wildflowers, woodland song birds, snakes, geese and lots of signs of woodpeckers. Thank you to everyone who joined us at the sale and on the walk.
