Get Clean: Give Away your Dirt

Do you have a bright idea? The Oliver Community Garden Society is in need of dirt  to level out the remaining half of their new garden site at the Quail’s Nest Arts Centre on 95th Street.  The soil does not have to be suitable for planting (which is done in container beds)  just fill to level the ground.  They are also looking for a way to transport the soil to this location.

Please contact Heather if you can help or know someone who can.

There are still boxes available for rent for the growing season. Contact Heather or visit their website for more information about becoming a community gardener:

Get Your Hands Dirty – for a good cause

submitted by Heather Whittall, Oliver Community Garden Society

Spring is finally here and we are ready to start growing at the new home of the Oliver Community Garden (the Quail’s Nest Arts Centre). The sheds, beds, barrels and bins have been delivered but now we need your help. We need as many strong, able bodies as we can get to help us move everything into position. Please come and help and bring your friends on…

Sunday May 15th
9 – 11 a.m.
Quail’s Nest Arts Centre

Please RSVP to olivercommunitygarden @ or 250-485-2535 so we can get an idea of how many helpers we will have.

We will also still looking for donations of start up materials such as dirt and compost so if you can help us out in that way it will be greatly appreciated!

Garden beds are still available so don’t forget to reserve your garden box for the 2011 growing season by calling or emailing me. We’re setting up fewer boxes this year so space is limited!

Looking forward to growing and gardening with you!
