Meadow Green Plays! Volunteer Day
May 12 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
It’s time to continue our work on the Meadow Green de-pave project! On November 25th, 2017 a group of amazing volunteers and Ecosource staff began the work of naturalizing a decommissioned basketball court in Meadow Green Park. We braved the chilly weather but quickly warmed up as we pushed wheelbarrows, shoveled soil and sand, and helped each other learn new skills. With assistance from the City of Mississauga, the space is now ready to become a play-friendly natural area in the park.
On May 12th we will be doing spring planting! Please join us for a day of learning, digging, and celebrating as we conclude this phase of the Meadow Green project.
