A couple of key takeaways:
The Police Community Response Unit (the bike guys) are hosting a public meeting at the Rec Centre on April 03rd 2014 at 7PM.
They will have various representatives ranging from Police, bylaw enforcement, permits, parking etc. to discuss the issues of the park and how to make it a better place for all.
Per Constable Muir, "Above all, the Police role in this meeting is to facilitate an open discussion and to educate, rather than enforce laws."
We'll post more details when we get them.
Are you interested in starting your summer plants in the greenhouse this year?
The park's community Greenhouse is run by its volunteer users. Sign up and get a shelf to grow your seedlings and share the work of watering and maintaining the soil mix. Your fellow volunteers can help you learn the basics of greenhouse use, seedling care and watering.
Are you interested in volunteering to water community seedlings?
At the Trinity Bellwoods Green House, we need people to volunteer to water community seedlings. This requires a minimum time commitment of one hour per week. You can request an AM or PM time slot on a weekday or weekend. We will train you in proper seedling care. Main seedling season startng March 15th.
If you want to get involved -- as a volunteer or to plant and nurture your own seedlings, please contact our Green House Coordinator, Elizabeth. Happy planting!
