The project will clean up an old alley and create a new literacy trail extension in the park. As well our pollinator patches, the trail will get a makeover with new trees and gardens.
The PPP is proud to be also included in developing the content for panels describing the life cycle of a bumblebee!
As part of the city's goal to reduce poverty by increasing literacy resources, reading pods will be established to encourage children and families to sit and enjoy a book under a tree or surrounded by vegetation. There will also be solar powered lighting and a technology charging station.
With literacy and neighbourhood pride, by enhancing and beautifying the community, that old adage, "you bloom where you are planted" might have a chance at taking root.
