The Lower Mainland Green Team wants to help make way for new trees beside the Pitt Meadows Community Garden, and is asking the public’s help in doing so.
But before the trees can be planted later this fall, the existing Himalayan blackberry roots need to be dug up.
On Saturday, Oct. 28, more than 30 volunteers will be working on the north side of the Pitt Meadows Community Garden to do some restoration and invasive plant removal.
This all-ages event requires no prior experience or tools, as everything is provided on the day by the Lower Mainland Green Team.
“We are grateful to the City of Pitt Meadows for their partnership and funding for this event,” said Lower Mainland Green Team program coordinator Andrea Robles.
“This is our third activity of the year with the City of Pitt Meadows, with past activities taking place on May 13 at the new Rose Grabenhorst Garden and June 1 at Hoffmann Park engaging local Girl Guides. We look forward to working together to bring more activities to the Pitt Meadows community.”
The invasive plant removal workshop will take place from 9:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 28. Interested individuals can register for the event by visiting www.meetup.com/the-lower-mainland-green-team/events.
