Oct. 29th - Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park community meeting. 7-830pm at Rec Centre, room tbd (it'll either be main flr or 2nd flr). All are welcome. We'll have reports and open discussions that concern you.
One or two of you were concerned about the material put down on the park's playing fields on September 26.
Safe for babies, kids, dogs and the rest of us? Yes.
It was applied by the city staff responsible for caretaking the playing fields and it is 'pelletized' (sp?), aged chicken manure. It is safe, organic but of course will smell for a few days. Small price to pay.
