Green Dreamers: Wed. Jun. 20 2018 at the Library

Green Dreamers: The City will not be delivering mulch this week. Instead, we will be planting.

We have received a significant donation of native plants from the Fletcher Wildlife Garden at the Central Experimental Farm! The list includes over 40 different plants including 6 varieties of aster, beebalm, Joe-Pye weed, hyssop, nodding onion, prairie smoke, turtlehead, yarrow, and more. All these are available now and they are in need of planting.

Windsor Park Spring Cleanup

Windsor Park Spring Cleanup

It started as a crappy morning.  Rain (possible thundershowers) and 7° C; what to do? What to do?  Well, it seemed that Brian had picked up the coffee & Timbits, so there was no turning back. After a rather soggy start, we had 25+ brave souls turn up to what turned out to be a fantastic social gaggle and park cleanup.

Green Dreamers: Welcome to our Fifth Season!

Green Dreamers: Welcome to our Fifth Season!

Yes, we’re back! So, if you see us in the neighbourhood wave, stop for a chat, share some of your gardening insights and suggestions. We are always delighted to see and hear from you. It’s why we garden in Old Ottawa South's public spaces; aside, that is, from the intrinsic rewards of gardening itself.

Spring 2018 begins our fifth season tending public beds along Bank Street and Sunnyside Avenue. And with the passing of winter we are preparing to rethink and “rejig” how we work as volunteer gardeners. So, if you have an opinion or some ideas about how we might do things differently, we’d like to hear from you.
