Community League Day - Saturday in the Park

Highlands community groups gathered this Saturday at Highlands Park to talk sustainability while building the community at Community League Day.

The Highlands Garden Club's lovely booth showcased photos from past years as well as gardening resources, the fairy garden (below), and free plants. It received many compliments.

As community members visited the booth and asked about gardening tips, Club members, ever the gardeners, worked to beautify the park's planters. Remainders from the Street Festival plant sale were planted in (some as "experiments") and generously watered.

The Club's efforts were greatly appreciated - gaining some attention from our local politicians.

Finally, as the day came to an end, ballots were drawn for the fairy garden.  The project was inspired by a recent workshop and put together by Margaret, Deb and Audrey as part of the Club's 25th anniversary.  It was won by our friendly neighbour Sukh Panghali!
