HCP garden needs help

The Horticulture Centre of the Pacific hopes a volunteer will overhaul its ornamental grass garden.

The garden was created in the early days of HCP but was abandoned for a number of years. The area was redesigned and brought back to life in 1999, but has increased in size and in plant varieties in the years since.

Now a small group of dedicated volunteers work in it a few hours a week. That crew is in search of someone to plan and design a work plan for the grass garden to develop an even more spectacular area than it already is.

Anyone interested should contact Amanda Price at volunteers@hcp.ca for more information.
