Many of you will remember Deborah Chute. Deborah was an accomplished native plant photographer, with over hundreds of photos in her personal collection. She shared her photos with many organizations, such as NANPS, Toronto Regional Conservation Authority, City of Toronto, Faith & the Common Good, Beaux Arts and the Richmond Hill Naturalists.
Deborah was absolutely passionate about native plants! She introduced the idea of a Pollinator information table at NANPS annual plant sale, and for over a decade, she organized and manned it. Deb also grew native plants from seed, and donated these plants to the Richmond Hill Garden and Horticultural Annual Plant Sale.
Deb will be sorely missed by those of us who were lucky enough to know and love her. In order to commemorate Deb and keep her memory alive, her husband, Chungsen Leung, has generously gifted $500 a year to NANPS for the next 5 years. The Deborah Chute Fund will be used to provide prizes for the winners of NANPS annual Video Contest (2021-2026). NANPS is very grateful for this generous donation.
