Last friday, one of Friends of Trinity Bellwoods dedicated tree adopters was surprised with a marriage proposal from her boyfriend in the Greenhouse! She said yes. Best wishes, Lindsay and Freddy!
PS - If you're curious about the adopt a tree program, check out menu tab above: "Adopt-a-Tree". We need more volunteers! Wedding proposals not included.
This past Sunday, June 15th, the Greenhouse was tidied up as the2014 seedling program winds down. Some of you asked about keeping your seedlings a bit longer, and that is fine--but you will need to make sure they are watered. Plants that are considered orphaned, we will look to put around in the greenhouse gardens.
If you have taken your tray/s home, please do return them to the greenhouse. And if the cells are in good shape, please bring those back as well. We will wash them for next year.
Are you interested in starting your summer plants in the greenhouse this year?
Dreaming of your summer garden? The greenhouse is set up for seedlings! There are trays and soil and pots, ready when you are. If possible we ask for a $30 donation towards supplies and upkeep.
Are you interested in volunteering to water community seedlings? If you would like to be involved, but not sprout any seeds, we are looking for volunteers for the watering schedule.
The park's community Greenhouse is run by its volunteer users. Sign up and get a shelf to grow your seedlings and share the work of watering and maintaining the soil mix. Your fellow volunteers can help you learn the basics of greenhouse use, seedling care and watering.
Main seedling season started March 15th.
If you want to get involved please contact the Green House Coordinator, Elizabeth. Happy planting!
