Thank You to OSCA and the Community

At the May 2017 AGM, Brenda Lee received the Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer Award from OSCA for over 20 years of volunteering on the OSCA Board and on the Events Committee. Brenda has been a strong supporter for events that bring the community together and has given of her time and knowledge openly and selflessly. Her contribution to the community has been felt in many ways, and the community will continue to benefit for years to come because of her efforts, and establishment of key OSCA events.

This is a transcript of her acceptance speech originally published in the June 2017 OSCAR.


Green Dreamers: June 2017 Update

Green Dreamers Just Keep on Trucking

The Green Dreamers have been busy! We’ve been turning soil, weeding, removing dead growth, clipping, trimming, composting and lately planting. 

Our requests for perennials this Spring from all of you who read OSCAR, visit OSCA’s website, honk your horns as you drive by, and stop to discuss gardening every Wednesday and Saturday mornings has been very successful. The challenge for Green Dreamers this summer and fall will be moving perennials from private gardens to Old Ottawa South’s public beds in a timely and efficient manner.


Green Dreamers: Sat. June 10, 2017

Green Dreamers will meet on the corner of Glen/Bank Saturday morning, June 10th 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. The task at hand is weeding, turning soil, and removing dead growth. Depending on our numbers, we might be able to tackle the garden bed at Grove/Bank as well.  Tools that will prove helpful include trowels, clippers, pitch forks, shovels, and brown bags. As we move from bed to bed this season we are finding it very easy to weed and to turn soil. The earth is light, easy to press a pitch fork into and just as easy to dig. What a difference from when we first started!
