• Blue Water Park Phase 2

    We returned to Blue Water Community Park in Parksville, where we wrapped the saplings in burlap and twine to protect from munchers. The neighbours were happy to see us, and we even got some press.

  • Over the Hump Part Two

    On the second part of this job we cleaned up a pond and some neglected raised beds.
    The owners are soon ready to grow!

  • Over the Hump to Port Alberni Part One

    This was one end of a gorgeous property in Port Alberni that is slated to become a permaculture landscape with lots of unique trees. We were tasked with bringing the blackberries, burdock, weeds and tall grass under control.

  • Back at Lighthouse Community Hall

    This is a return visit to the hall in Qualicum Bay where we worked two years ago. This job took three days and we were FULL! We also had to tangle with some unhappy black faced wasps who didn’t like us visiting their neighbourhood.

     

     

     

     

     

  • Meeting the Neighbours

    This was a residential property nearby that had become really overgrown. We cleared a septic field that was covered in tall blackberries, and shortened the tall grass.

  • Lending a Hoof in Lantzville

    We worked on the beautiful residential property to eliminate sweet clover, alder and blackberries.

  • Community Project

    Tomorrow, May 14th, we begin a really fun project for the RDN. We will be helping to reclaim Blue Water  Community Park in Parksville, which has become a little overgrown with weeds and blackberries, JUST the things that we love to chow down on. The residents are anticipating our arrival and have put protective covers around the small trees that they had recently planted. If you have a chance come by and see what we are up to; we will be there for up to two weeks.

     

    Residents want Bluewater Park to be green
