Garry Oak Garden needs volunteers

This spring’s first Grand Old Oak Tree Garden Work Party will be held  Saturday, June 9, from 10 a.m. to noon, rain or shine.

All ages and families  welcome to beautify the grounds and help preserve one of the grandest Garry oak trees in its namesake city.

This is a community volunteer activity. Bring garden tools and gloves if you have them.

“We’ll be ‘spiffing up’ the garden, getting rid of invasive plants, weeding and admiring what is in bloom,” said organizer Melissa Duffy. “Come learn about native plants that grow in Garry oak ecosystems and visit our landmark, giant oak.” Call 679-1255.
