Earth Day

To mark EarthDay, The Stone Store made a $500 donation to Guelph Urban Forest Friends. GUFF is a completely volunteer organization that works very hard on the ‘greening’ of our city by protecting and increasing tree canopy in our urban areas.

Check out their website or visit their booth at the Guelph Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.
