less herbicides, more flowers near creek!

All our efforts to be good stewards of the Poppy Creek Green Space, and to plant poppy flowers there, has led to a reduction in herbicide application in the area.

Working with staff from the city’s creek stewardship, we have managed to get a landscaper at the property adjacent to where the Poppy Creek Green Space bulletin board is, to stop spraying. ¬†This came after a bunch of flowers we had planted at our fall gathering were poisoned and destroyed. ¬† New ones are now coming up, and a promise not to spray again was made.
