LEAF and City of Toronto launch Maple Leaf Forever Online Auction

Posted on March 18, 2015

LEAF is working with the City of Toronto, the Green Living Show and Ontario Wood on a design exhibition and auction. Unique designs, submitted through a competitive process and selected by a panel of judges, are being crafted by local artists using wood from the Maple Leaf Forever Tree.  A portion of the proceeds for this project will support LEAF’s urban forestry initiatives.

Visit their online auction to view each item, learn about the designers and place your bids! You can place online bids anytime from now until the auction closes.  Photos will be updated as the designers’ work progresses. The pieces will also be exhibited at the Green Living Show(March 27-29, 2015), where you can see them in person.  You can also place online bids right at the exhibit (using your smartphone or their iPad). The online auction closes at exactly the same time that the Green Living Show closes – March 29, 2015 at 5:00pm.
