  • Title: GardenOntario: Gloucester Horticultural Society - news - online
    Descriptive info: Gloucester Horticultural Society.. Top Generation Club hall garden renovation project, by Gloucester Horticultural Society.. by GHS.. In the fall of 2008, the Gloucester Horticultural Society was.. asked to participate in Albert s Gardens project.. This project studies the effect of climate change on the bloom time of tulips in local gardens.. The NCC would provide tulips if we could find a place to plant them and if we were willing to record the tulips bloom times.. Gloucester Horticultural Society approached the Top Generation Club (a local seniors club) to see if we could plant the tulips in the beds around their club hall.. Their response was unexpected.. They informed us that the maintenance of the beds had become too much for them and they were, in fact, considering converting the garden beds to lawn.. Unless.. perhaps? we would be willing to take over the maintenance of the beds.. Of course we agreed immediately.. The beds were badly overgrown and some invasives had taken over.. So in late 2008, we went and did a major pruning and clean-up of the beds which included the removal of.. Convallaria majalis.. and.. Saponaria officinalis.. Unfortunately, in some cases these two invasives had become so intertwined with the existing plantings that the only thing to do was remove the plants.. In other cases, sun-loving perennials had been planted and were struggling for survival under the canopy of the now mature trees.. During the winter months, we realized that this project may qualify for an OHA Special Projects Grant.. So we formalized the plan, included our budget, plant list and photos of the site, and submitted an application to the OHA for consideration.. At our District AGM we were notified that we had been successful in our grant application.. We knew our project would be even more spectacular now.. We resumed the transformation.. of the beds in the Spring of 2009.. The first step was to  ...   an added dimension in this inviting outdoor setting.. Vibrant gardens have brought new life to this heritage setting.. The gardens are a source of pride for our group and make the site a more fitting location for a Horticultural Society monthly meeting.. We will be honoured to show these beds off at our 85.. th.. anniversary celebration in 2010.. As a side note, the tulips for Albert s Gardens which were the impetus for this whole project never materialized.. That year the NCC was unable to supply bulbs.. However, the renovated garden that resulted is something that has far reaching benefit.. Site history:.. The Ramsayville School (SS No.. 13) is a one-room converted school house built in 1894.. It is the second building authorized to hold school sessions since permits were first issued for Ramsay s Corners in 1848.. The building is one of the few remaining brick school houses of that era still standing and still in public use in Ottawa-Carleton.. This designation includes the school house, an outbuilding and the land within the property lines.. (Quoted from the wall plaque indicating that this building was designated as an historical site in 1997.. The Gloucester Horticultural Society began meeting at this facility in 1975 and continues to do so today.. The cosy one-room school house is a National Capital Commission heritage building..

  • Title: GardenOntario: Bolton & District Horticultural Society - news - online
    Descriptive info: Bolton & District Horticultural Society.. A History of BDHS Community Beautification, Naturalization and Special Projects.. In the 18 years since the BDHS was founded, a number of beautification projects were initiated financially supported by the society.. Here is a brief history of some of these sites and BDHS involvement.. The list begins with current, on-going projects.. Some projects listed below (numbered 7 - 14) are no longer actively managed by the society, but remain part of the improved landscape of Bolton.. 1.. Bolton Mill Park Naturalization Projects, between Queen St.. N Humberlea Road, Bolton.. This is a major continuing project of the BDHS, started in 1998.. The Humber River is the focal point and improving the health of the river and the natural habitat in the river valley is the prime purpose of our activities.. Here is what we have accomplished to date:.. 1998 - diverted a hill side spring to create a Wetlands c/w pond, native trees, shrubs wildflowers.. 2002 - planted mix of native trees shrubs at McFall s Dam.. 2004 - planted mix of native trees shrubs on west side of Humberlea Rd.. 2005 - planted mix of native trees shrubs in park at base of hill.. 2006 - planted a wildflower garden adjacent to the Wetlands.. 2008 - spade planted 33 mature native coniferous deciduous trees (12 varieties).. 2009 - expanded existing Wetlands pond and added new pond south of path.. 2012 - TRCA machine planted 23 large calliper ball burlapped (B B) native, deciduous trees.. 2013 - TRCA machined planted a mixed variety of 25 large calliper native B B trees.. Dick's Dam Park Community Naturalization Project, adjacent to Glasgow Road, Bolton.. The aim of this project is to help re-establish the woodland habitat in this important area of the Humber River valley which will improve both the quality of water that enters the Humber River and the air we breathe plus providing improved habitat for local wildlife.. This park is unique in that the Humber River, a Canadian Heritage River, flows through it and a well used trail connects the various activity areas such as a soccer field, children s playground, volleyball court and an open area for community events.. This Park was named after the Dick family who are a prominent family in the Bolton area and whose ancestors originally built the dam to provide water power to their Iron Foundry in Bolton.. The original dam abutments are still in place (under the walking bridge).. This area also has other local heritage significance in that it was once part of the hamlet of Glasgow that was incorporated into the Village of Bolton in 1872.. Glasgow was a thriving community with both a Woollen and Saw Mill.. A Commemorative Kiosk provides an interesting history about the area.. This site also provides access to the Humber Valley Heritage Trail Association (HVHTA) trail which connects with the Rail Trail in Palgrave and the Bruce and TransCanada Trails.. 2010 - TRCA work crew machine planted a mixed variety of 73 large calliper B B trees.. 2011 - Seneca College students machine planted a mixed variety of 75 large calliper B B trees.. 2012 - TRCA work crew machine planted a mixed variety of 23 large calliper B B trees.. 2013 - TRCA machined planted a mixed variety of 16 large calliper native B B trees.. 3.. Taylorwood Community Tree Plantation, South of Columbia Way between Kingsview Dr Westchester Blvd.. Est 2010.. This is a multi- year naturalization project to re-establish the woodlands in this important local environment by planting native trees shrubs in the Cold Creek sub-watershed of the Humber River, a Canadian Heritage River, thereby improving both the quality of water in the Humber River and the air we breathe.. 2010 Spring - Hand planted a mixed variety of 300 native trees and shrubs.. 2010 Fall - Hand planted a mixed variety of 300 native trees/shrubs assembled/installed 10 bird nesting boxes.. 2011 Spring - Site clean-up and mulched watered previously planted trees and shrubs.. 4.. Sunkist Woods Environmental Projects - located in Bolton on Old King Road.. 2002 - Funded and installed an Environmental Interpretive plaque.. 2005 - Community volunteers hand planted a mixed variety of 300 native trees and  ...   perennials, shrubs, vines, trees est.. 1995.. - Raised planters with Bench and flagpole est.. - Rebekah Rose garden est.. 1995.. - Plant A Seed and Watch it Grow Youth Garden est.. 1999.. 9.. Caledon Seniors Recreation Centre,.. 7 Rotarian Way, behind the Caledon Centre for Recreation Wellness.. BDHS membership was growing in leaps and bounds and we had outgrown our first meeting site at the Bolton Legion on Ann Street.. While we waited for this new facility to open, BDHS members began some ambitious gardening plans to showcase our meeting place.. In 1996 the existing foundation plantings were enhanced by the addition of perennials donated by BDHS members.. New beds were created at the roadside using more plants donated by our generous members and Sant s Cold Creek nursery.. 10.. Rotary Place Scree Garden,.. 7 Rotarian Way, Bolton Xeriscape Rock Garden est.. 1997:.. Alpine plants in gravel substrate.. In 1997, BDHS members (and their spouses) muscled into place the boulders donated by James Dick Construction.. Members planted alpine plants into Grade A roadside gravel after first rinsing all the soil from their roots.. This resulted in a unique, xeriscape garden we call the scree bed.. 11.. McFall s Lookout,.. King Street East, just west of Humberlea Road.. Viewing platform, historical plaques, native trees and shrubs est.. 2001.. (also called the McFall Fishway, Mill Park Lookout).. The concept was presented to Town of Caledon council in 1998.. Concerns about privacy for the property owner next door were alleviated when BDHS planted 6 large evergreens for screening purposes along the west border of the site.. The lookout garden and pathway was designed and installed in 2001 by landscapers working in consultation with BDHS members.. The goal was to open the view to Mill Park from King Street to reveal the hidden parkland.. Partnerships with the TRCA and Albion Bolton Historical Society resulted in a pictorial display of the milling history of the Humber River.. This park was opened in time to celebrate the federal government s designation of the Humber River as a Canadian Heritage River.. 12.. Downtown Bolton Flower Container Beautification Project.. Initiated purchase, planting maintenance of 55 flower barrels from 2000 to 2004.. 13.. Caledon Centre for Recreation and Wellness,.. 14111 Regional Road 50, Bolton - Planted a wide variety of shrubs perennial flowers beds, est.. in 2002 and maintained until 2006.. When it became apparent that BDHS was outgrowing the space offered at the Caledon Seniors Recreation Centre, there came an opportunity to move to the new Wellness Centre and to be involved in the Landscape Committee.. Proceeds from two years of Garden Tour fundraising were dedicated to the Wellness Centre and planting of the site began in 2002.. The vast expanse of empty beds swallowed the hundreds of plants BDHS member installed in their first effort.. A major expense was the installation of an automatic sprinkler system.. Fortunately, a generous donation of perennials shrubs from a business and a thousand bulbs from Rotary filled in most of the planting gaps.. 14.. Louis Plunkett s Memorial Garden,.. Caledon Centre for Recreation and Wellness, 14111 Regional Road 50.. Est.. in 2004.. Louis Plunkett was a founding member of the society and well past 3 score and ten years of age, was an inspiration to many younger members.. He loved caring for roses and had unlimited energy for gardening in general.. This garden was planted to honour his memory and his many contributions to the society.. Recent renovation of the centre led to the removal of the rose gardens to make room for the addition of a youth centre and gymnasium.. (2013-11-27)..
