Goodbye Robyn!

Today is Robyn Webb's last day as the DMSMCA Greening and Environment Coordinator. A big thank you to Robyn for all her hard work planning, building and organizing the community gardens! She has been instrumental in their success.

A part-time replacement will be hired in April to take over coordination of the gardens. In the meantime, questions about the gardens may be addressed to Kemlin at director(at) or in person at 823 Ellice Avenue.
