Last night the tenants at our seniors’ community at 30 Base Line Road West were the happy recipients of plants from the Friends of the Civic Garden Complex.

This nonprofit group gives tours of the Civic Garden Complex on Springbank Drive, and holds fundraisers to help support the complex’s greenhouse growing project.

This year they donated their extra plants to a number of tenants across the city, including three of LMHC’s properties. Besides 30 Base Line, our Marconi Boulevard family community and our Limberlost family community are also receiving plants for their balconies or yards.

Last night’s “Balconies Beautiful” event included a ice cream donated by the London Ice Cream Company and coffee from Tim Horton’s, as well as a demonstration of Tai Chi from the Horton Street Seniors’ Centre, and a fitness demonstration from the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON). The City of London’s Community Development staff have also been important partners in these events.

London and Middlesex Housing Corporation is very grateful to all the sponsors who helped make this event enjoyable for our tenants.
