Finally, the weather has improved enough to begin gardening at Mole Hill and summer is fast upon us. The lane way is lush with thimble berries and beautiful wild flowers, which many tenants and west end residents have been enjoying. Just a few reminders about gardening. In accordance with other environmental practices at Mole Hill, we ask that you keep the watering to a minimum and that it take place in the early or later hours of the day. This ensures that the water is absorbed into the soil and not the atmosphere, due to evaporation by the hot sun. The lawns are not watered during the summer months, as despite turning brown during the hotter months they always return to a lush green in the fall.
Mole Hill maintains the lane way and green way, so please give the office a call at 604-687-1145 if you have concerns about the plants. These are delicate eco-urban areas and require an experienced hand to maintain. If you are interested in having a garden plot, please call our office or contact the West End Resident’s Association at www.wera.bc.ca. Mole Hill will be conducting some structural work and painting on the outside of some of the houses over the summer months and the window washing will take place in July.
We would like to welcome Joshua Falcioni as our new Caretaker at Mole Hill. Joshua started on June 15, 2010 and has already familiarized himself with the many intricacies of the 28 houses on the block.
