Plant Out at Maffeo Sutton Park Sat Oct 17 from 1 to 4 PM
Perhaps you remember when the city held a plant-out in June, asking the neighbourhood associations to come and help? We cheekily challenged the rest of the city to beat the South End in a) numbers and b) sheer outputm offering an Art Bin to the #2 team. We had a blast, it was great fun….even though it was the hottest day of the year.
Now, they’re planning another event…this time to plant spring bulbs. Chris Sholberg says:
We are currently sitting on about 26,000 spring bulbs (16,600 daffodils and 10,000 crocus). We would like to propose another community plant-out event on Saturday, Oct. 17, 1-4 p.m. at Maffeo-Sutton Park to put these bulbs in the ground. Would your neighbourhood association/group be willing to participate in this event?
We will provide the plants and City gardeners to provide oversight. Volunteers with their own shovels, garden tools would be welcome. Kids are welcome too.
We can’t let our reputation as the hardest workers in the city be tarnished!! If you can join in, please call Douglas at 754-0677. Or send us an e-mail: southendcommunityassociation [at] gmail.com.
