Windsor Park Spring Cleanup

Windsor Park Spring Cleanup

It started as a crappy morning.  Rain (possible thundershowers) and 7° C; what to do? What to do?  Well, it seemed that Brian had picked up the coffee & Timbits, so there was no turning back. After a rather soggy start, we had 25+ brave souls turn up to what turned out to be a fantastic social gaggle and park cleanup.

Green Dreamers: Welcome to our Fifth Season!

Green Dreamers: Welcome to our Fifth Season!

Yes, we’re back! So, if you see us in the neighbourhood wave, stop for a chat, share some of your gardening insights and suggestions. We are always delighted to see and hear from you. It’s why we garden in Old Ottawa South's public spaces; aside, that is, from the intrinsic rewards of gardening itself.

Spring 2018 begins our fifth season tending public beds along Bank Street and Sunnyside Avenue. And with the passing of winter we are preparing to rethink and “rejig” how we work as volunteer gardeners. So, if you have an opinion or some ideas about how we might do things differently, we’d like to hear from you.

Next Bridge-to-Bridge Project Planting: October 7, 2017

It’s the job of all of us to promote peace, beauty, and to leave the world better than we found it.

That is the ideal of the Bridge-to-Bridge Project. The idea is to grow a forest that can protect our community from the smog and sounds of the traffic on the six-lane monstrosity that has become Bronson Avenue.

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!
