Gates and Gardens

In past this has been an active committee that included volunteer residents from both Portland Estates and Portland Hills. The committee met once every month from April to October to look after the gardens, shrubs, trees and flowers at the Portland Estates and Portland Hills  gates and the Birches Park area. They are responsible for everything, including weeding, applying fertilizer, mulching, pruning , trimming and dealing with pests and disease. Along the way they repair or replace plants that need help in these areas. If you love being in the garden at home you would have a a lot of fun gardening with us.  We are very fortunate to have great support from the City whether we need mulch, soil, trees or advice with the specialists they have on staff. We also put up Christmas wreaths on the two Gates every year.
