Oct 5 | Volunteer for Garden Border Replacement Project

Volunteers Needed: Michele Heights Community Garden Border Replacement Project 

Michele Heights Community Garden, located in Michele Park in the west end of Ottawa (closest address is 2955 Michele Drive), adjacent to Michele Heights Community Housing is planning to replace the borders around the plots at our community gardens. The existing border are at end of life and need to be replaced – this is a big project, since there are 30 plots! Join us on Saturday, October 5, from 9AM – 5PM to assist!

  • Sunday, Oct 6 will be the rain date, but will plan to work, unless the weather is very wet. 
  • Volunteers are asked to bring a pair of work gloves, and battery powered electric drills, with a bit for standard deck screws would also be very helpful!
  • Eastern white cedar is being purchased from a mill in the Ottawa Valley that is already cut to the required lengths.  
  • Snacks will be provided throughout the day, but please bring a lunch and water to drink.  

 Anyone interested in helping out should reply to Sinjin Dixon-Warren (sinjin.dw@gmail.com), who is coordinating the project. Further details about the project can be provided. Thank you.
