As you well know, a few years ago the city did extensive work to the streetscape of our Downtown Cultural District. This included hanging baskets for flowers, but none at street level. Many of us have taken it upon ourselves to have containers at our front doors to add colour and interest as you stroll the area.
One step further, Erin Dunlop of Belly Babe Maternity Boutique on Locheil St. has formed a DOWNTOWN BEAUTIFICATION COMMITEE. The first job of this committee is install plants around the base of the trees in the entire downtown area which includes both Christina and Front Streets from Wellington to George. Imagine how pleasant it would look with living plants surrounding the trees, especially when they are in full foliage!
This is NOT a city project, although they have been approached to donate some of the unused plants from the city greenhouse. This is a DOWNTOWN MERCHANTS project. Many, including ourselves, have donated money to purchase plants & other supplies, as well as donate our time.
We are looking for your help. If you would like to donate plants or your time to give a helping hand, please contact Erin at 519-491-0977 before May 24th. Actual work day will be MONDAY MAY 28TH after 4:00 pm.
Any and all help is appreciated and welcome in making YOUR downtown more beautiful!!
