You may have noticed there are changes happening at the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park Cutting Garden. The improvements are currently underway. Once completed, there will be a slightly different layout of the garden beds so that we can grow more flowers for all of our seasonal bouquets. Additionally, there will be all brand new fencing to better stand up against the elements at our beautiful Oceanside location in Filberg Park.
The Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park Association (FHLPA), with the help of volunteers and the community has worked very hard fundraising through various means including the Filberg Festival Raffle and our annual Holiday Raffle to raise the funds for this project. In addition we have had generous grants from the BC Museums Association and British Columbia | Canada 150: Celebrating B.C. Communities and their Contributions to Canada grant programs.
The changes are happening to coincide with the upcoming growing season as the volunteer growers are excited to start filling the boxes with this year’s seeds, bulbs and seedlings. If you’re in the Park, stop by and have a look at the progress. Check back here for further updates.
