Volunteers invited for spring clean-up of the Pollinator Garden at King & John park

On Wednesday afternoon, May 8, volunteers are welcome to come out to help with the spring clean-up of the pollinator garden at the park at the corner of King and John Streets.

Klara Young-Chin will be at the park starting at 1 p.m., Wednesday, May 8.

The stalks from the Ironweed and the Joe pye weed have fallen over so it needs to be cleared to give space for the new growth to come out.

Please bring trowels, shears and a shovel (if you have) along with garden gloves and water bottle. The area may be wet so appropriate shoes or boots are advisable.

Pollinator plants

On another note, Sandra Ozkur of Niagara Bee Group, says the group has a fundraiser offering the purchase of a flat with 38 native plants in 4-inch plugs, with six varities of blooming wildflowers, at Apple Hill Apothecary, 758 Niagara Stone Road, Niagara-on-the-Lake.
