Franklin Green Garden Work Party!
Located in Franklin Green (behind the old Wellburns at Cook & Mason) is a small, native plant garden. This garden was established in 2017 and is added to a bit more each year.
This garden is cared for by volunteers who love native plants, community, and nature. If you would like to learn more about native plants, teach others about native plants, or spend some time in a community garden getting to know your neighbours, let us know!
This year, the NPNA is pairing up with VIRCS Welcome Garden to care for the Franklin Green Garden! Learn more about the VIRCS Welcome Gardens here: http://www.vircs.bc.ca/content/welcome-gardens
