10th St East and Williams Road


We have more plants and willow stakes to get in the ground at Glen Urquhart and some work to do at Mallard. At Glen, the potted plants will be used to create a hedgerow near the creek and we have more willow stakes to put in. At Mallard, we need a day or two to make sure everything is planted and ready for the winter. We will likely spend the 9, 10, 16th at Glen Urquhart and the 17th and 18th at Mallard. We will send out an email regarding the exact meeting location the day before the planting.

Tools and instructions will be provided. Please bring your favorite garden/outdoor work gloves and dress for the weather!

After signing up you should receive a confirmation email. If you do not see it in your inbox check your junk mail folder. If by the end of the day you have not received an email or if you have any questions, please email
