    Volunteer Appreciation 2022

    Thank you for all the ways you've supported TTLT over the past year! As a small staff, we depend on dedicated volunteers to fulfill our mission of protecting, restoring, and nurturing nature. Your contributions have been vital in making this possible and we thank you for it. 

    Let us show our appreciation by joining us for an evening of food, fun, and prizes on Wednesday, August 17th at 6PM at the Westminster Ponds Centre. Bring your lawn chair and any yard games you'd like as we celebrate another year of accomplishments made possible by volunteers! 

    This year's event will be hosted in partnership with ReForest London (RFL) and London Environmental Network (LEN) and will take place on the green space outside of the Wellington building at Westminster Ponds Centre. Gather with fellow TTLT, RFL, and LEN volunteers for an evening of food, fun, and celebration!

    Volunteer Opportunity: Booth Support

    Brent Jones is hosting his annual Back to the Garden Festival and we've been invited to set up a booth on Sunday, August 21 from 11am-7pm.

    Back To The Garden is a gathering of friends & neighbours - coming together in the spirit of cooperation & healthy living through the celebration of music & art in the great outdoors. The musicians & artists put it on themselves through their contributions – there is no funding or sponsorship – and this year is being presented with the kind help of the London Music Hall of Fame, the Forest City London Music Awards & the Digital Creative Arts Centre – sound provided by Armor Pro Audio Visual. Sunday will feature a full day of artisans, food, and music on two stages. This is a family-friendly event with free admission.

    We need your help to take part in this great community celebration! We're looking for booth volunteers to engage with people & sell TTLT merchandise and transportation specialists to transport TTLT materials to and from the event. The priority is to fill as many volunteer roles as possible to reach 4pm, but the goal is to have enough help to stay the entire time. Ideally, there will be one experienced individual per shift.

    Please sign up here to help us be a part of this special community gathering.
