Watering at The Airpark and Kus-kus-sum

Date and Time: September 27, 2022, 9:00 am
Location: Courtenay, Lagoon Drive
Description: Until it starts raining again the plants at the Airpark and Kus-kus-sum need to be watered. We have a water tank with a hose that gets pulled on a trailer to do the watering. While watering is our primary task, there is also weeding and mulching at both locations. Volunteers should be physical fit enough for all tasks – watering, weeding and mulching. The group of people that volunteer together will determine how best to allocate tasks.

Watering occurs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and will continue on this schedule each week until it starts raining. We would appreciate it if volunteers could sign up for one or more of these days for the remainder of our watering season. Volunteers are asked to meet at 9 am at the Park Café near the Courtenay Airpark where the tank gets filled and picked up. The location that will be watered (Airpark or Kus-kus-sum) will be decided at the time. The group will water from 9 am until all the plants at the location are watered which is usually around noon. If people need to leave early some days that can be accommodated.
