Bring your Perennials! Friday June 6

Thu Jun 5, 2008 Miss Vicky 

Well it looks like things are a go for some guerrilla gardening in the vacant lot beside the Victoria pharmacy. Well, not too guerrilla, really, because the HCA has permission from the owner, who has even thrown in a truckload of topsoil to get the party started! So yay for Jacques Trottier and the hard-working folks at the HCA!

The soil will be delivered tomorrow and interested gardeners and diggers are invited to show up at 6pm to help get things started. Bring your shovels! And Perennials! Children are encouraged, but the site is a bit rough so make sure they wear sturdy running shoes.

I don't think there is a set design for the space... it's all going to happen very organically and gradually, I suspect. Which is just fine. Miss Vicky will have some echinacea to donate, and probably some irises too, once they've finished blooming for this year. And some crazy wacky tall yellow things. Apparently the councillor's office is trying to secure some rocks and stones from local development sites, and they should show up in the next few days. It's all so exciting!

In other community garden news, the veggie plots at Laroche park are a tentative go. We may have to simply ready the plots this year for planting in the spring, but it should be a great site.

Hmm.. Are shrubs acceptable? I have a variety of rosebushes, as well as a number of rooted pieces of corkscrew willow. :)

Unfortunately I've plans for tonight, but I do have plants I can donate. Will there be any other "group" gardening nights for the lot? (Ithink it may be rained out tonight anyway!)

I think so. i will post more details as I have them. We have GCTC tix tonight so will be missing this as well. I suppose we can always declare our own!
