Nice Hyacinths! Tupper Plant Swap

In the wet days of fall, we collected free bulbs from Queen E Park and City Hall, through our Green Streets Program Connections.  Thanks to May, Shera, Andrea, Lisa and Jennifer, we are now witnessing our efforts - Look on the Boulevards for pink, white and purple hyacinths.
Be SURE to get your nose up close - they are super sweet.

If you are a K parent, check out the daffodils in the annex boxes and garden along the annex on 27th.
The bulbs they planted last year are blooming.  And their sunflower seeds are already showing their seed leaves!

Green Street Plant Swap

Saturday April 20th

Tupper Greenway is located on the north side of Tupper Secondary School.
Some Wolfe students are in the Tupper catchment.
Wolfe PAC is a  member of the City of Vancouver Green Street Program, and we have access to free compost and we can trade plants!  They have info tables for you to ask questions (about anything plant related), and the students participate as well.  Even if you are not a gardener, but your child is considering Tupper, its a way to see the school spirit in action.

If you feel like digging beforehand, we have some short Oregon Grape to give away (an indigenous spreading shrub).  Tall Oregon Grape in the back gardens (flowering yellow now) makes purple berries in the fall which make great jam!
