Thank you for such a "healthy" turnout on Saturday, April 29th. We were able to have a very productive "huddle" before fanning out into the neighbourhood to begin our early morning gardening activities at Sunnyside/Bank, Glen/Bank, and Grove/Bank. The cool winds, glorious sunshine, and encouraging salutations from passers-by made for a quick and rewarding cleanup. Tools that proved useful: rakes, pitch forks, trowels, cutters, paper bags, waste bags, and brooms.
At the huddle outside the Firehall, a variety of gardening activities were discussed. (More about the list of activities coming later). Central to May's gardening tasks, however, is composting. We would like to suggest to you that on Saturday, May 20, 2017 we repeat our annual pilgrimage to Ottawa's Trail Road Site to pick up a truckload of compost.
