Harold Moseby Day
Harold Moseby was the original designer of the Heritage Roselawn Garden. In honour of his design and as a part of our continuing efforts to restore the gardens, we have begun what we hope will be an annual tradition: inviting the community to join us for some good, clean outdoor fun!
First Annual Harold Moseby Day
Saturday, October 15, 2016
It was a grand day for garden cleaning on October 15th. About a dozen folks armed and ready for raking leaves, pulling weeds and planting bulbs worked for a few sunny hours on our first annual Harold Moseby Day. Our ten newly aquired children’s wheelbarrows were ready for action. We also kept the kids entertained with leaf painting crafts. With over 200 daffodils planted along the east side of the building and over 50 red and white tulips tucked away by the heritage rock the Roselawn garden should be bursting with colour next spring. This will be a great intro to Canada’s 150th celebration in 2017. When all was said and done the hard working volunteers enjoyed boxes of timbits and coffee.
Lots of hands helped to make the day a great success.
