Sunnyside Rain Gardens 2019

Green Dreamers News and Our First Plant Drive

Green Dreamers News and Our First Plant Drive

Yes, it’s that time of year when the Green Dreamers share our latest news and invite you to our first ever plant drive to be held on Saturday, June 8, 2019 between noon and 3:00 p.m!

The Green Dreamers are very pleased to have recently received a donation from the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association. This money will be put to good use at the Sunnyside Branch library garden. It is the largest site of the approximately twelve public and private sites along Bank Street that our volunteers tend to every spring, summer, and fall. This also includes the Firehall site and the rain gardens on Sunnyside Avenue. Without the hard work of these green thumbs you would still be driving past untended and weedy garden plots between the two bridges. Luckily for our community, four years ago David Chernushenko hatched the idea for a volunteer gardening group and the Ottawa South Community Association took it under its wing.

Native Plants Garden

In June 2018, Sandra Garland from the Fletcher Wildlife Garden planted a variety of young native plants at our local library. With the help of Sandra and some very dedicated Green Dreamers we have managed to keep these native transplants alive and thriving. Among the varieties planted at the Sunnyside Library you will find: arrow-leaved Asters, Beebalm, Joe-Pye Weed, Nodding Onions, Upland White Goldenrods, and Pearly Everlastings.

September is Here!

September is Here!

Thank you to Green Dreamers who showed up Saturday & Sunday on this Labour Day Weekend. There were five of us who were able to squeeze in some time Saturday morning to spruce-up the Firehall, the two beds on Sunnyside at Bank, and the bed outside Hopewell School near the children's playground. Well done!

Green Dreamers Meetup: Sat. Sept. 1, 2018

Saturday, September 1st, 8:30 - 10:30 a.m.

I've been away most of August and I'm now back in town. I don't know how many of you are in Ottawa for the weekend (it's the Labour Day long weekend) but after talking to Brian Ure, we thought that we would let you know that we're in town and that we will be gardening this Saturday morning. We will meet at the Firehall.
