Green Dreamers launched their fifth Season May 26th, 2018 at the Firehall. This year, instead of hauling compost from the City’s Field facility near Moodie Drive, we bought sheep manure and brown bags from our local Scout troop and associated Beavers, Cubs, and Venturers. We’re always trying to find new ways to make the work a little lighter, a little easier, so instead of wheelbarrows we moved sacks of manure from the front porch of the Firehall (where the Scouts dropped them off) to our vehicles and drove them to the garden beds.
By now you have likely seen the Green Dreamers along Bank Street, cleaning up, removing old growth & winterkill, weeding, turning soil, and yes once again replanting. We’re a determined bunch of gardeners! You may have also noticed that not all the gardens are getting the same amount of attention. As a way to conserve our energies, maintain our commitment and have more fun the Green Dreamers are focussing on gardens that have been adopted. By adopted, we mean the gardens that have designated overseers, or captains. Adopted gardens include the Library, Sunnyside/Bank (3 lots in all), the Firehall, Glen, Grove, Ossington, and Cameron.
