The Grand Opening of the Riverview Park Pollinator Garden by the Toboggan Hill
The Friends of Riverview Park Green Spaces welcomed neighbours and volunteers to the Grand Opening of the Riverview Park Pollinator Garden on June 24, 2023. Our Councillor, Marty Carr, was on hand to say a few words and open the (tiny!) gate. Thanks to Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library for their generous donations of seeds. Daniel Buckles, who has been instrumental in the development of the pollinator garden, rain garden, food forest and other environmental improvements in Champlain Park, Ottawa, came to participate and donated a favourite book to help guide similar improvements in Riverview Park. Thank you for your support Daniel!
This pollinator garden would not have materialized without the hours and hours of work to get the permits, the materials, the garden design and the planting. The principal actors include Anna Nitoslawska, Ron Ridley, and Lynne Patenaude.
