Mini Forest Soil Preparation April 13

09:00 AM — 03:00 PM

REAL is planting a mini forest at Corbett Park this year.  On Sat. April 13 we will be preparing the forest floor by putting down layers of cardboard, leaves, compost and woodchips.  We are looking for adults and teens (accompanied by a parent) to help shovel, rake and wheelbarrow the floor components into place.  If you can volunteer for one and a half hours, contact Dave at  thornley.j.d@gmail.com or 613-205-0320.  Can’t come?  The planting will be taking place in the fall, when we be looking for help also.  See www.REALaction.ca for more.

No one can shake free the dark secret that terrifies him: not his mother, nor his fiancee, nor his best friend. Even the pleading of a gypsy girl accused of murdering Victor’s younger brother falls on deaf ears, for Victor has brought into being a creature made from pieces of the dead. The creature tracks Victor to his sanctuary to demand a bride to share its loneliness. Against his better judgement, Victor agrees and soon the household is invaded by murder, despair and terror!
