Community Garden Fundraiser: Metals To Petals

Another great community event happens this Saturday, Feb.25,

Another great community event happens this Saturday, Feb.25, when a metal fund-raiser is being held in the lane behind Lake Cowichan Secondary School from 8a.m. to 4p.m.

This is a fund-raiser for the Greenhouse Project at LCSS  where the organizers are looking to raise enough cash to complete the community greenhouse and shed and have some funds for ongoing water and electricity costs throughout the season.

Steel Pacific will be providing a large recycling bin for the event, which the organizer of the event, Michele Taylor, hopes to see the community fill up with any unwanted metal they have around the house.

Items that can be donated include washers, dryers, metal wheelbarrows and the like, so this is the perfect opportunity to get rid of any unwanted metal around the house and help out a great cause.

This is another one of the community’s fund-raising events that will assist a project that has been well received in the area as well as giving homeowners a chance to beautify their own space.

Michele is anticipating great community participation on Saturday with people looking to turn their unwanted metal into a community garden that will be a benefit to our entire community, we think she will be right.
