Perimeter Park July 25, 2020

Published on July 27, 2020 under GVGT in Action

The Greater Victoria Green Team organized community and environmental activity sessions in Colwood’s Perimeter Park! We had lots of new faces, volunteers from local companies, high school students and Colwood Councillors too! We ended up removing a few large patches of invasive Himalayan Blackberry and also Scotch Broom!
