On June 13, a special event was held by Heritage Mississauga at The Grange. This event was part of the David Suzuki Foundation’s Plant a Canoe project.

The city of Mississauga, Mississauga Heritage, Mississauga First Nations, the Plant a Canoe committee and the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Veterans’ Council all participated in bringing this project to fruition.

Plants were donated for the project on behalf of the MNO Veterans’ Council.

The donated plants, being good pollinators, will help the bee population and also beautify the garden at The Grange.

A plaque will eventually be placed at the site.
