Garden Maintenance Groups

If you are interested in joining any of the maintenance groups (or forming one of your own), here is a list of the days they work and the contacts for group leaders.  By joining a group, please remember that you are not committed to coming every week but you will be notified of the work each week. All groups have people of varying abilities and you will only work to your own physical abilities. Also, you are welcome to bring a friend!

Monday is led by (lynn_barker@shaw.ca or phone 250- 964-2982). They start late April to early May and go until early October.  They focus mainly on the shrub borders and walkways so the primary work is weeding. The group meets at the garden from 10am to noon unless it is pouring rain. A bucket and perhaps a hand tool are all that are required.  They do a bit of hoeing as well and Lynn generally brings any tools needed.  Feel free to bring your favorite weeding tool.
Wednesday evening is led by Trine Helsoe (trinemg@shaw.ca). They generally work the same areas as the Thursday morning group. Their hours are 7pm to 9pm and they start from the end of April until mid-September.  Trine will poll the group to see what day works best so the day may change.  Give her a call if you would like to work the evening group.
Thursday morning
is led by Wendy Barteluk (wbarteluk@shaw.ca or phone 250-564-5570). They start early to mid-May and go to early October.  They focus mainly on the perennial beds, the Rocky Mtn berm, the thyme garden and the hedge.  This group generally brings their own tools but tools are available at the shed. They work 9am to 11am and meet at the shed.  An email is sent every Monday to give details of the project for the week.
Friday morning group is led by Grace Morrice (morrice@telus.net).  They also go from early April (cleanup) until early October. Their hours are 8am to 11am every week unless it is raining.  Their focus is the gardens around the pavilion.  They meet at the southeast end of Parking Lot B.  All notification is done by email and done on the day prior to meeting.  This group also brings its own tools but Grace will get tools from the shed for you if you need them – just email her first. 

If you are interested in joining her group, please send her an email.If you are interested in forming another group (and help is gratefully appreciated), please contact Trine Helsoe (trinemg@shaw.ca)
