Green Dreamers: Gone Fishin'

Saturday, July 29 - Saturday, August 26, 2017

The Green Dreamers are taking a holiday for the month of August. As always, please feel free to garden at will. We will be in touch before the end of August but, for the time being, we're putting up the "gone fishing" sign and hope that you too enjoy the leisure and slower pace that August so often imposes.


Green Dreamers Update: Fri. Jul. 21, 2017 at the Library

Here are some pictures from Friday morning's (July 21st) Green Dreamer gathering at the Library. Christine & Mike secured a lovely selection of plants from Krysia's garden on Riverdale earlier in the week and with the help of fellow Green Dreamers transplanted mature succulents, lavender, and generous clumps of sedum in the once empty Bank Street planter. Needless to say, more mulch was added!


Green Dreamers Update: Sat. July 15, 2017

I would like to suggest that no matter what the weather we all take a break this Saturday.

On Wednesday, July 19, 2017 we are expecting a couple of loads of mulch. We'll need as many Green Dreamers as possible to help rake and spread this mulch. We may not spread all of what we receive on Wednesday, but we can finish the job the following Saturday. I will confirm drop-off times and locations before Wednesday July19th. Our last big Green Dreamer push for July-August will be the spreading of mulch to keep the weeds at bay.


Green Dreamers: Weekend Stalwarts

Saturday July 8th was a routine Green Dreamer garden date (we meet every Wednesday & Saturday). In the early hours of the morning however there were thunder showers with a heavy downpour.  A couple of us who were up early enough thought perhaps it would be better to cancel. The ground was soggy and the sky continued to look a little threatening. Two Green Dreamers, however, did not see our 8:00 a.m. cancellation call and met at Sunnyside & Bank. Once up and out, they saw no reason to retreat. Instead they did a little gardening.
