Sunday’s Peace Park gardening (March 15th) was enjoyable and productive! We had only one brief episode of rain at the start of our work; followed by a great day for gardening despite predictions of heavy rain. A hard working crew made short work of our 4 yards of bark. Many thanks to Chuck, Jamie, Claire, Heidi, Scott, Tedine, Barry, Malcolm, Chris and Harvey for their efforts. Also two people passing by stopped and helped out for about an hour. All the paths are barked and the peace sign shows up really well. We used the extra bark to mulch the planted area. Moving bark takes a lot of enegy and everyone’s effort was greatly appreciated! Since the weather held, we had the opportunity and enough time to dig out the dandelions and other weeds that were crowding our plantings. Plants are filling in really well. Can’t wait to see the garden when the flowers are blooming–which should be in a couple of weeks. Voodoo donuts and Peets donated generously. Extra coffee and donuts went to the SHARE House in Vancouver.
A great big THANK YOU TO MALCOLM who has volunteered to coordinate future Peace Park activities and gardening events. Gardening is monthly every 2nd and 4th Saturday Next gardening day is Sat, March 28.
