Native Plant Garden Sets Roots in MIll Creek

Here are some photos of last Saturdays group breaking at the abandoned Mill Creek site. The soil was a little tough and the weeds a little think but the grounds of a brand new native garden have been broken. Thanks to Cherry Dodd for helping us out with some plants, tools, and advice, and to all those who showed up to lend a hand.

There is talk of taking Saskatoon cuttings this upcoming weekend.

Event: (Sep 20) Mill Creek Native Plant Garden


Preparing soil, planting native plants, and BBQing!

After checking out the site last weekend we've decided to go ahead with the creation of a Native Plant Garden on an abandoned site in the MIll Creek Ravine.

Plants provided by the Edmonton Naturalization Group. Need only bring a few tools.

There's also much talk about having a fire and roast after the work is completed. I think a potluck scenario probably works best. BYOB.

When: Saturday, September 20, 2008, 1:00pm - 5:30pm
Where: Meet outside the "Rount 99 Diner" (8820-99Sst NW) We can walk to the site from there.
