If you like gardening, this is your big weekend. Events, including native and ornamental plant sales, are happening all weekend long at the Botanical Garden, and this afternoon on the Plateau, there is another plant swap/ giveaway. Details can be seen on the PlantCatching website: http://plantcatching.com/en/partagevegetal

I’m off this morning to collect flowers from the Ville – the different boroughs give flowers and compost away every year. The giveaway usually begins at 10 AM, with a few locations for each borough, but they are not well-advertised because they still draw a huge crowd. Call 311 for your area. Bring a pail for your compost and arrive early; the line-ups are usually long.
