We will be mulching in mid-October the new plantings of native trees and shrubs in the public park at the corner of King and John Street. If you are available to help out, please let us know by sending an email or using the form below.
We did weeding in mid-August and on Sept. 11 and will be trying to do some more before the mulching in October.
In October 2020, volunteers planted 450 native plants and shrubs as a riparian planting along One Mile Creek. A recent assessment by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority is that there appears to have been a 90% survival rate for the plantings – better than the 70% target.
There are a number of invasive weeds and aggressive grasses that need to be removed to give the new plantings a chance to get established.
You should bring:
- Closed-toe shoes
- Shovel or garden fork
- Gardening gloves
- Water bottle
The weeds will be put in piles for pickup by the Town.
