Green Dreamers: Weekend Stalwarts

Print Email

Saturday July 8th was a routine Green Dreamer garden date (we meet every Wednesday & Saturday). In the early hours of the morning however there were thunder showers with a heavy downpour.  A couple of us who were up early enough thought perhaps it would be better to cancel. The ground was soggy and the sky continued to look a little threatening. Two Green Dreamers, however, did not see our 8:00 a.m. cancellation call and met at Sunnyside & Bank. Once up and out, they saw no reason to retreat. Instead they did a little gardening. 

Jill Anderson & Brian Tansey weeded the bed outside the Hopewell School yard, and, once finished, there they continued to weed the bed outside the Dollar Store. You can't imagine our delight when first they emailed us with their results and later sent these pictures.

Bravo to Jill and Brian. What a great big relief!  The little bed at Hopewell is one garden that we have been trying to get to for weeks now. Thank you! The gift of gardening just keeps on giving. Thank you.
