We’re dreaming of a “green” Christmas!
Thanks to all who have ordered trees this year! We will see you on Saturday, December 14th at the Bloomfield Centre from 9-1!
Orders are now closed.
Since 1992 the Ecology Action Centre has provided Haligonians with chemical-free, sustainably logged Christmas Trees. Our trees come from the farm of Kevin Veinotte, a 7th generation farmer who lives in LaHave with his family. “We still grow, shear, and harvest the trees in much the same way [as my father did],” says Kevin, who uses horses to harvest his trees. “Our farm has 22 acres with native Balsam Fir. Balsams grow so well here that we choose not to fertilize or spray with chemicals. The bushes and undergrowth are cut by hand, and the aphids are kept in check with a yearly introduction of about 160,000 ladybugs - don’t ask me how they count them!” Kevin’s woodlot is FSC Certified, and was the recipient of the Nova Scotia Woodlot of the Year designation is 2007.
Last day to order trees: December 7th
