FEEL like adopting a bit of green space?

The Greater Terrace Beautification Society is looking for individuals or groups to take over the care and maintenance of its outdoor spaces.

It’s a strictly volunteer effort and the society is looking for people who have had at least some gardening experience, says society president Chris Hansen.

We do have a standard for upkeep, but basically it’s weeding, tidying up,” said Hansen.

The society has enough green spaces of varying size and composition to appeal to different skill levels, she added.

What we’re looking for is a commitment to your level of ability,” Hansen said.

The green space list takes in the four-way stop of Hwy 16 and Hwy37, the Howe Creek Tree Park, Brolly Square downtown, the planters at the farmers’ market and the Bridge View scenic site overlooking the Skeena River just before the city side approach to the old bridge.

Only one location requires mowing and that’s the Howe Creek Trail Park, said Hansen.

Beautification society members will be glad to take prospective gardeners on a tour of the sites.

Hansen said the call for people to adopt specific spaces marks a shift in the beautification society’s efforts.

We’re looking for people who want to make a commitment to their community,” she said.

More information will be available when the society holds its annual general meeting April 5 at city hall. More information is available from Hansen at 250-638-1049.

The beautification society holds its annual garbathon pickup of litter in April and on May 26, it will officially open Brolly Square.
