Clare Gardens Park Mulch Move – Come and participate!

20 09 2013

The Volunteer Gardeners of Clare Park need your help!


The City of Ottawa has generously donated a really large pile of mulch to top dress the park’s garden beds. We need volunteers to help us move the mulch. The mulch helps keep the weeds down, protects tender roots over the winter, regenerates the soil and keeps moisture in the soil. We need this stuff.

Here’s the details for the community mulch move:

Day: Sunday, September 22, 2013

Time: 9:30 am till 1 p.m

Tools to bring: Shovels, racks, wheelbarrows (please put your name on tools)

If you don’t have tools don’t worry. Give whatever time you have to donate. All help is welcome.

Thanks in advance for your support.
