Canada is working to get two billion trees planted across the country and its efforts are expanding to Winnipeg.
Starting on Wednesday the Home Grown grant program will be accepting grant applications.
The program is part of Canada’s 2 Billion Trees Commitment, which promises to plant the aforementioned amount of greenery throughout the country in 10 years.
As part of that effort, the Home Grown grant goal is to get 71,000 trees planted throughout the city in the next five years.
“Canada’s commitment to plant two billion trees is a key part of our collective effort to tackle the twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss,” says Jonathan Wilkinson, minister of natural resources.
