REMEMBER 11-11 Poppy Display
Building on the success of the 2018 painted wooden poppy project, the City’s Parks, Forestry and Environment Division is making a minimum of 1,111 poppy-shaped seed balls out of wildflower seeds and soil to support native pollinators and serve as a living tribute to our soldiers.
The seed balls have been created by residents and community groups during events throughout the year. They will be collectively displayed at Celebration Square from November 9 to 12. They will then be placed in natural areas around Mississauga to promote the growth of wildflowers and provide habitat for pollinators.
