Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens Volunteers, Visitors Mississauga Park

Here are more pictures of some of the volunteers at Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens, a City of Mississauga Park. The pictures on this page are courtesy of David Culham, the BRG stewardship committee chair.

When David is not busy weeding, planting or planning at the gardens, he's out and about chatting with visitors and snapping photos. Thanks, David!

Photographers Flock to BRG When Rhodos are in bloom

Volunteers at the Gardens are used to seeing photographers throughout the beds, especially when the rhodos are in bloom in May and June. With new lily, peony and rose gardens, and even more rhodos, they can expect even greater numbers of picture takers!

When volunteers are working in the gardens, they're rarely alone, as residents and visitors alike come to enjoy the quiet beauty of the gardens year round.

Here's a call for volunteers from David Culham:

"Garden staff Para and Joe, and volunteers, are putting the Brueckner Rhododendron Garden to bed for the winter.

"Tomorrow (Oct 20 Tuesday), and during the rest of this week, we are planting the remaining companion plants in the rhododendron beds.

"Also, we have some tree peonies to move and re-plant in the Peony Bed along with 3 new companion shrubs.

"We expect to plant the remaining tulip bulbs as well.

"You are welcome to come along in both these tasks!"
