The Green Dreamers are out and about once again! You may have seen a few recently at the Library and the corners of Bank Street and Sunnyside Avenue. Their silent green “tag” is unmistakable. They leave a trail of “loved lots” all along Bank Street and Sunnyside Avenue. And yes, there were a couple of Dreamers sighted at Grosvenor this last week tidying up one of OOS’s rain gardens. In late June another solo Green Dreamer was spotted on the grounds around the Firehall.
News and updates from the Green Dreamers, a team of volunteer gardeners in the neighbourhood. Get in touch with the Green Dreamers team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well the autumn leaves are tumbling down and the weather is turning colder both day and night now. Our 15 garden beds, after a summer of glorious sun and intermittent rain fared very well after a slow, dry start in July. Because of COVID, our volunteer group of eleven dedicated gardeners were delayed in starting this spring because of the City’s restrictions on community ornamental gardening. Green Dreamers took our direction from the City’s Adopt-a-Road Program about the start-up date after lockdown.
Our team of local volunteer gardeners needs to replenish the ten city plant beds we care for on Bank Street between the bridges, and on Sunnyside Avenue. Because our limited budget has been strained due to COVID-19, we cannot cover the cost of new plants so would appreciate your help.
The Green Dreamers will be collecting plant donations on Saturday, September 26,2020 from 9 am to noon at the Firehall.
Diligent watering and weeding has paid off. And heat and sun has done the rest.
Gardening Restart June 22, 2020
Wouldn’t you know it as soon as I wrote the last update we got the word from the city Adopt-a-Road program manager that we could restart gardening respecting physical distance, wearing gardening gloves of course and having no more than 10 people at the bed at any one time.
