Garden Cleanup

September 28 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Garden Clean-Up Day - This Saturday, 10 AM - 2 PM Gardening is mostly a volunteer endeavor. We need hand-on volunteers to weed, prune and mulch our beds before the winter season. Please join with us on Saturday, September 28, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Come for an hour or the whole time. Bring pruners or shears if you have them. CVC staff will join us too. Meet Abdulkareem, our part-time gardener, who has been keeping weeds at bay over the summer. In the coming weeks I will be at UCM on Thursdays for Fridays (weather-permitting) if you care to join me mid-morning. Kindly let me know if you can join us (email carole.berry@rogers.com). If you would like to join the committee, I’d love to hear from you. Carole Berry Take a walk around UCM on your next visit. See the pollinators gathering on the asters and golden rod. See the giant seed pods on the Monarch-friendly milkweed (and perhaps even some butterflies). There are rose hips ripening on the wild rose shrubs and birds busily gathering food and chatting in our berm. It is a wonderful testament to the work of the volunteers and CVC in building up our gardens and inspires us through natural beauty. You will notice a new bed at the side of the building. It has been planted with Irish Moss and Sedam plants, and a few herbs (smell the thyme). Planted by Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) as a demonstration of ground cover to replace lawn. Take a look at this transformation. Carole Berry
