Our next Green Dreamers' gardening dates are:
- Wednesday, September 14, 2016 8:30 - 10:30 a.m.
- Saturday, September 17, 2016 8:30 - 10:30 a.m.
This Saturday, September 10th, is Old Ottawa South's Porch Sale from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and it seems that a number of our Green Dreamers will be preparing their own individual porches or walking the neighbourhood looking for that special something that can only be found in a garage sale. The Porch Sale is one of OSCA's main annual events and we encourage all of you to help celebrate OOS this Saturday, September 10.
The Green Dreamers will not meet this Saturday, September 10, at our usual 8:30-10:30 a.m. time slot but we look forward to seeing you next week on Wednesday September 14 and Saturday September 17. We will udpate you on the location later this week.
A Brief Update
Green Dreamers met this last Wednesday, September 7th, at Judy's & Peter's home to dig and move perennial plants from Rosedale to Sunnyside & Bank. The work was sweaty and messy but rewarding. By 10:30 there were still a few GDs watering the SW bed outside the Dollar Store, admiriing a bed that now looks much fuller and more promising, and oh so different from the drought-starved bed of earlier this week.
Congratulations, Green Dreamers. Your timing is impeccable. Last night's rain fall will go a long way to helping secure the roots of our new transplants. A special thank you too to Judy who so willingly assisted in the actual removal of her perennials and to Peter for his generosity.
Brian Ure and I will be taking some time today to survey work to date, perennials left to plant, and work plan for next Wednesday. We will update you within the next few days with a suggested schedule and specific activities for the month of September.
Thank you again for all your work yesterday. It's amazing what a small dedicated group can accomplish!
