Glashan Schoolyard Greening Project Update

 An update from Tree Ottawa collaborator the Glashan School Yard Greening Project.

April Update — It’s Crunch Time!!!
  • The landscape contractors are expected to arrive to start greening work in late May or early June. Action! Yahoo!
  • The base contract on the schoolyard’s southside (along Catherine) and northside of building (Arlington) is fully funded. Yipee!
  • We have an estimated financial gap of $5-6,000.00 for us to be able to get the contractors to also do the north-west corner greening plan this time around. (area in photo bellow). We have raised just over $30,000 for this component so it seems like “so near and yet so far”. We need to close the gap in the next two weeks for this to get done. Yikes!
