FWG Gets Outside Help

By Ted Farnworth   

Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC), The Royal Ottawa, and TD Bank. What do they have in common? Well, each of them has volunteer groups that have recently come to the Fletcher Wildlife Garden to help us.

Our regular volunteers do a great job, but we are always happy to have groups come out to lend a hand. Using enthusiasm, strength, and speed these volunteer groups were able to get many items off of our “to do” list. The PWC group put up new story boards, worked on the eavestrough/downspout, moved some large logs to the pond, placed flagstone around benches to help with water drainage and did some work on invasives.

The Royal Ottawa group was able to pull enough DSV in a morning to create a pile more that a metre high (see photo). The TD bank group also worked on DSV, and were able to dig out enough purple comfrey to create two giant mounds (see photo).

We welcome such groups to help us to maintain the garden and we know that this first experience with the Fletcher Garden is a great way for us to get better known in the community.
