Urban Greenscapes is making Shelter House a better place.

THUNDER BAY – Urban Greenscapes is making a difference in Thunder Bay. The hardworking group of volunteers have set their sights on making our city a better place. This week, work is ongoing at Rotary Shelter House putting in vegetable gardens, and putting in potato boxes.

Fence Post Gardens

In addition, the group will install some really neat pop bottle mini gardens that will hang on the fence.

The two-liter bottles are being reused to grow herbs, including sage. These easy to make hanging gardens would be perfect for a home or apartment.

A few weeks ago, Urban Greenscapes was on the ground at the Kam River Park cleaning up a winter’s worth of mess. Today the parkway remains cleaner, and offers a great place to walk, relax and reflect.

Over the coming weeks and months, with what is hoped to be a growing number of volunteers, Dan and the team hope to expand their efforts across the city.

From their Facebook Page, www.facebook.com/urban.greenscapes visitors can find out how to help. The volunteer group is always looking for more helpers; as well donations are gratefully accepted to help the ongoing projects.

As well, Urban Greenscapes offers a lot of really good information for gardeners and environmental caring residents.

The goal is making our community a better place, with a strong base in the environment, and a cleaner and greener Thunder Bay.

Dan and Urban Greenscapes volunteers are putting deeds to words. There are always lots of projects happening, and of course there is nothing stopping you from creating a project all on your own too.
