Growing in East Hamilton

Month: March 2018

TreeMobile set for 2018

The 2018 TreeMobile program is underway. TreeMobile is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization that makes perennial food plants, mostly fruit trees, available (at excellent prices) to people in and around the GTA. The TreeMobile web site has comprehensive information on tree planting and care, although the species information is sometimes sketchy.

Orders can be made online and the closest pick-up location to Hamilton is Guelph, on May 12 only. We may be organizing a collective pickup if several club members order. Stay tuned for details– we’ll try to find a coordinator/driver.

Here’s the web site: https://www.transitiontreemobile.org

New web site is up and running

We’ve moved the club web site off wordpress.com and set up a self-hosted wordpress site/blog on our own domain https://crownpointgardenclub.org (opens in new tab). Please update your bookmarks and subscriptions. In a few weeks we’ll be replacing the content on this site with links to the new site.

We are also moving the mailing list to Sendpress so if you receive our emails you’ll notice some changes, including an opt-in link, so we’re completely compliant with Canada’s anti-spam legislation.

There are several reasons for the move. As site visits increase, WordPress.com is starting to deliver advertising to our site. We don’t want that. As well, the dot com setup limits what we can do with widgets and plugins. For example, we can’t run Sendpress without a self-hosted installation. We can also do nifty things with polls, calendars and photo galleries.
