High Park Nursery and Boulevard Beds Spring Maintenance

Posted on April 3, 2017

Sunday, April 9, 2017, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Grenadier Restaurant, Colbourne Lodge Drive and Centre Road, Toronto, ON

The High Park Stewards plan to clean up the Boulevard Beds and the Nursery, cutting down winter’s growth, and raking to uncover the plants that have survived the winter.

The Boulevard Beds are getting an exciting makeover this year. The group will work in front of the Grenadier Restaurant parking lot, uncovering the existing plants, removing old stalks, and transplanting new native plants from the Nursery if weather allows.

Meet in front of the Grenadier Restaurant at 10:30 am, and go together to the site. All tools will be provided, but dress in layers and be prepared for muddy ground as the temperature is unpredictable.
