How Many Trees Can Canada Grow?

With your help Planet Foods has donated 50 cents from each Jonsteen Tree Grow Kit to the David Suzuki Foundation. Along with all the good things the David Suzuki Foundation does, we thought it would be fun to calculate roughly how many tree seedlings you are growing right now. We are estimating that about 10,440 tree seedlings are growing, indoors in grow kit containers like above, across western Canada right now. Keep Growing Everyone!
