Invasive Species Removal - Garlic Mustard

Invasive Species Removal - Garlic Mustard

Garlic Mustard is an invasive plant that can take over the forest floor killing native wildflowers like Triliium or Spring Beauty.

On May 16 at 2:00 pm we will be meeting at the end of Roselena Dr in Schomberg to pull garlic mustard and help protect the native spring flowers of the remnant old growth forest that is there. We will supply bags but recommend you bring a good pair of garden gloves. The work is easy. We will train you to recognize the plant and away you go. No need to pre-register, just show up. See you there.

"We Believe in Abby" Family Day

We Believe in Abby Family Day

Craig and Becky Eveson know the value of both family and community.

Three years ago, little Abby Eveson was born and her birth started a chain of events. Due to a complicated mixture of four heart conditions, she's spent much of her young life in and out of SickKids Hospital in Toronto. With more surgeries under her belt than anyone would want, and despite her current challenges, Abby's at home and her parents, Craig and Becky have made it their mission to celebrate.

Each year they organise the "We Believe in Abby" Family Day. As Becky puts it:

"How to say thank you to a group of people that have touched our lives in so many different ways? Being able to show our gratitude to those who reached out to us and helped to give us hope and strength, on days when that was hard to find. We hope you can come help us be thankful and to celebrate the gift of time with your children on a fun filled day."
- Becky Eveson

Join us for this FUN, FREE event! Donations to SickKids are greatly appreciated.

Saturday June 24th
11:00 am - 3:00pm
Hickstead Memorial Park, 21 Summit Ridge, Schomberg.
