By Ted Farnworth Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC), The Royal Ottawa, TD bank, & Ernst Young LLP. What do they have in common? Well, each of them have 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” that included putting up new story boards, working on the eves trough/ downspout, moving large logs to the pond, placing flagstone around benches to help with water drainage, resurfacing paths with wood chips, and creating a brick pathway to the Back Yard Garden. And of course there was plenty of work on invasives – DSV and comfry. We even got rid of some unwanted honey suckle.
We welcome such groups to help us to maintain the Garden, and know that this first experience with the Fletcher
Garden is a great way for us to get better known in the community.
