Work party in the Greenway tomorrow, Monday, 3:00

Hello, everyone,
We'll have a work party in the Greenway tomorrow, Monday (Oct 30), 3:00. Please come if you can. We've got a bit of compost to shovel and move, but we will have an official "shoveller" — Maria's friend Alex — so we can let him know where the compost should go and we can, meanwhile, rake and weed and tidy up.
Eric is away for a few days, but he's already taken care of about 2/3s of the compost. Thank you, Eric!

The Parade of Lost Souls was last night, but the Dusty Flowerpot people who put the event on did a really good job of protecting the Greenway. The only damage I could spot when I went down there today was the bed outside of the 55+ Centre was quite trampled and the cosmos there were damaged. But the cosmos season is just about over anyway, and they're annuals, so no big loss. I'll plant more next summer.

Work party in the Greenway tomorrow (Monday, Oct 23)

Hi, Brit Neighbours,

We'll have a work party in the Greenway tomorrow (Monday, Oct 23). I have one small Nandina to plant … and there's always a bit of raking and weeding.
Happily, now that we're into rainy season. there's no further need to water. Thanks to Rummen and Patrick, nothing died this year, even though it was ridiculously dry.

If you can make it tomorrow, see you at around 3:00!

PS - Look at this gorgeous shrub behind our book exchange (Napier and Salsbury)! Anyone know what that is? We should get a couple of those for the Greenway. What a fantastic colour at this dreary time of year!

Work party in the Greenway today...

Hello Brit Neighbours,
Let's meet this afternoon (Oct 16th) — rain or shine — at 3:00 because we have Liz Nowatschin, the new Green Streets coordinator, coming to meet us and see the Greenway.
If it's raining, which seems very likely, we won't meet for long, but let's show up.
I'll have one thing to plant (a Nandina that I'm picking up at Figaro's today) and I'll bring a few leaf bags just in case it's still dry enough to scoop up some oak leaves.

Work party tomorrow (Monday, Oct 2), Greenway, 3:00

Hello Brit Neighbours,
A bit nippy tonight! Time for some autumnal activities in the Napier Greenway!
We have a few bulbs to plant and Christine and I bought a few plants at Figaro's this week, which we'll bring along, so we can put those in too. 
And we can do a bit of weeding, raking, pruning, etc.
Hope you are able to join us.
The usual!
