Anderson Hill Park February 25, 2018

On February 25th during a blustery chilly day, 23 volunteers of the Greater Victoria Green Team co-organized an English Ivy pull on Anderson Hill Park. Along with the two coordinators (Amanda of the GVGT and Christina, the park steward), the volunteers helped to remove over 5 cubic metres of invasive plants including English Ivy and Spurge-laurel (Daphne). 

A big thank you to Christina Johnson-Dean, the park steward, for your continual dedication to Anderson Hill Park! We LOVE working with yoU!

Thanks to all GVGT volunteers for making a big difference: Conway, Emma, Melissa, Emily, Jason, Paige, Maggie, Madeline, Kai, Andrew, Travis, Isabella, Terra, Karen, Jennifer, Tree, Nghi, Siaowei, Kirsten, Shannon, Ricardo, Fransisco and Kari!

A HUGE thank you to the Victoria Foundation, LUSH Cosmetics and our many other FUNDERS for your continual support and funding to allow these activities to continue!
