EartHand Gleaners Society is thrilled to be partnering with our friend and neighbour, Environmental Youth Alliance (EYA) for a Family Stewardship Day during March Break. EYA has a big new project on the go, reclaiming a former blackberry plot into a wilderness zone of native species on the south east corner of Strathcona Gardens, and we have lots happening at Trillium North Park- getting ready for a planting day with our class group at the end of the month.
Bring your family, learn about your local wild places and the nature refuge available right near your own home. Meet neighbours, pick up a shovel or trowel and help with weeding, transplanting and more! Tools and gloves available, but bring your own if they have them. Bring a lunch, garden blend tea will be served!
pre-registration is appreciated to help us plan the day- email earthandgleaners(at)gmail.com and let us know how many are in your group.
