High Park Invasive Species Removal / Boulevard Beds Maintenance

Posted on June 13, 2019

Grenadier Cafe, 200 Parkside Drive, Toronto, ONĀ 

Maintenance, a.k.a. “weeding,” is as important as planting and equally rewarding. Once the weeds are removed, the native plants have room to grow, display their beauty, and provide food and shelter for wildlife.

The High Park Stewards will be working in their restoration sites, weeding and monitoring the growth of native plants. The targeted invasive species in High Park include garlic mustard, hedge parsley, Himalayan Balsam, Oriental Bittersweet, ragweed, sweet white clover, Queen Anne’s Lace, motherwort, and burdock. It is amazing how the group can make a real difference in one morning!

The Boulevard Beds group will be updating their demonstration garden, near the Grenadier Cafe.

Meet them in front of the Grenadier Cafe at 10:30 am, and go to the site together. All tools will be provided.

The City of Toronto provides services that have a direct impact on your daily life and sometimes it is not clear how government works, where to find information, or how to express your opinion.

My Local Government, It’s For Me is a great place to start if you would like to learn about your local government, the decision making process, and how to get involved. Information is available in English and 24 additional languages that will help you become informed, have your say, and serve your city. This initiative started in 2016 as a response to residents’ requests on how they can get involved in their local government.
