Bancroft Area Stewardship Council Begins Annual Tree and Shrub Program

Spring is around the corner and the Bancroft Area Stewardship Council are helping get gardeners ready.

They say they have begun their annual Tree and Shrub Program. Ian Hendry, Chair of the Council, says the program has grown year over year, saying they were able to sell 8,000 trees last year despite the pandemic, with most trees are sold to residents in the area. Hendry says the money raised will go to local projects. This year they plan to donate a butterfly garden to the Centennial Manor for the residents to enjoy. Every year they do shoreline rehabilitation projects, and this year the Council plans to do these projects for Baptist and Chandos Lake.

This year they are including a butterfly garden kit, which will offer 4 plants known to attract pollinators. Hendry says the Council wants to promote the role of pollinators in people’s gardens and says they are an important part of the ecosystem.
