Community Gardening

The Alex Wilson Community Garden, located at 552 Richmond Street West, is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The area is divided up into 40 plots, each tended by someone, or a group of people, from our community. Westside Montessori School has plot #34 and our thumbs are getting green! The Garden was initiated as a memorial to the life and work of Alex Wilson, a landscape designer, writer and community activist.

The children have been to the garden for a few visits and are thrilled to see the plants growing and hear the birds singing. Last Friday afternoon, Ellery, Cameron and I went for a walk to a greenhouse at Queen and Euclid, where we looked, felt and smelled our way through a variety of plants and flowers in search of the perfect inhabitants for our plot at the community garden. We look forward to a season of gardening, meeting our neighbours and relaxing at the garden.

Fund Raising Yard Sale May 30th at 8am

We are organizing a “Playground Revitalization” yard sale for Saturday, May 30th from 8 am until 2 pm.

Should you be doing any spring cleaning over the next few weeks, and have some items to donate, send us an email at info@westsideschool.ca. We’ll sort out a drop off time when you can bring your unwanted items into school for the sale so we can spruce up the playground for the children!

We look forward to seeing you at our sale, at the school, 511 Richmond Street West.
