There is a little space at the North junction of Joan Crescent and Craigdarroch Road that is the Rockland Woodland Garden. It is a special project for the neighbourhood of the Rockland Neighbourhood Association.
The volunteers in the woodland garden continue to battle some formidable adversaries:
large cloven-hoofed multi-stomached voracious defecating polygamous ungulates
long-rooted, tenacious, choking, white-berried bushes
invasive, proliferating, alien-blue hyacinthoides
However, we are a sturdy, dedicated team. Please consider joining us!
We always welcome new volunteers! Come on out, get some exercise, meet your neighbours, contribute to your community, and feel good about helping to re-establish a part of our endangered Garry oak ecosystem!
