Saint Johnners Called On To Plant Evergreens

The driving force behind Marigolds on Main, now known as the Marigold Project, is urging Saint Johnners to plant evergreens and the more, the better. 

Barry Ogden tells CHSJ News the more trees there are, the better people seem to behave because greenery is a stress buster and attract songbirds as well as clean the air.

Ogden says there are too many streets in various parts of the city that are devoid of trees which soften the streetscape. 

Ogden choose evergreens because of their hardiness and would enable Saint John to be green year round.
