Perimeter Park March 8, 2020

Published on March 11, 2020 under GVGT in Action

The Greater Victoria Green Team organized an eco-volunteer activity at Perimeter Park in Colwood! We helped liberate a number of native plants from the invasive shrubs of Himalayan Blackberry and Scotch Broom! We were joined by the Colwood community including neighbours who walked from across the street, Colwood Councillors, youth, students from UVic, and many others!
