Work Party Monday 3:00

Hi folks,
Work party and watering in the greenway on Monday July 29th! Come if you are able. (I am not able because I'm in Portland, but I know a few people will show up, and the garden will be grateful for an extra watering...)
Have fun and I'll see y'all soon.

FLORIDA MARKET to close at the end of July!

We're sad to report that FLORIDA MARKET, a Commercial Drive institution, will be closing at the end of July. Our neighbours, the Kim family, have lived above and run the market since the 1980s. The owner recently sold the building and the Kims are losing their home and their business at the same time. My neighbour, Veronica Church, and I made a big card for them. We gave it to Young yesterday. Here she is! She would love to come back to her neighbourhood soon! Plus, we need her! She's our friend, our neighbour, and our resident flower expert!
Cheers and thanks, Young, for many years of fabulous flowers! Hurry back!

Work Party tomorrow (Monday), 3:00!

Hi gardeners,
If you can make it, we're going to have a work party in the Greenway from 3:00-around 5:00. Come if you can!
No need to RSVP!
Just show up with your gardening gear — or use ours! We have lots.

Melanie, our dedicated worker!

Melanie comes out to the Napier Square Greenway four days a week, no matter what the weather, to pick up litter. She has been working for us for just about a year now, and we are so pleased with her hard work and so lucky to have her with us.
Give her a big hello next time you see her in the Greenway and thank her for her dedication!
Britannia Neighbours pays Melanie's wages through the SEED Employment Program at The Kettle Friendship Society.

Entertaining mini-work party today!

Christine and I were the only worker bees in the Greenway today, but we were happy to have Helen and Claire as visitors! Meanwhile, we got lots of weeding done. Next week Paul will be back, Pat will be back, Eva will be available, and we'll have a huge turnout!

Work party today in the Greenway, 3:00!

A few of us are away, but Christine and I will be there for sure. Come if you can!
