A portion of SEEDS greenhouse was hit by a falling tree on Monday night's storm.

SEEDS greenhouse closed after tree falls through roof

The greenhouse is closed but the volunteer group will still be part of the Canada Day celebrations at Lakeside Park.

The Seniors Economic Environment Development Society is sad to say the greenhouse at Lakeside Park that SEEDS has occupied and grown food in for the last two or so years has had a tree fall on it in last night’s storm. All the food that we have been growing inside has to be destroyed because of the shards of glass.

“At this time we do not know the extent of the damage the greenhouse has sustained,” wrote Eva Hernandez, SEEDS executive director. “The City is removing the tree and will be assessing the damage and condition of the greenhouse and will be in touch with us at that time.

“Please come and support us at the Canada Day Celebrations at Lakeside Park,” said Hernandez. In lieu of greenhouse tours, they will have a table in the park between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Until further notice, SEEDS Greenhouse will be closed. They will update through Facebook and their website as they know more.
