Northern Savings Credit Union employees lend a hand

Employees got their hands dirty and joined together with the Kaien Island Anti-Poverty Society to help do some spring gardening.



On Sunday, May 27, employees from Northern Savings Credit Union got their hands dirty and joined together with the Kaien Island Anti-Poverty Society to help do some spring gardening. Volunteers from the credit union were helping to move dirt and gravel to plant a variety of flowers and shrubs in and around the KAPS Community Garden located on Ritchie Street near BC Housing, a garden that any members of the community are encouraged to make use of.  Perennial shrubs including Junipers and Rhodos were planted outside of the garden’s fence to help beautify the area surrounding the community garden, as well as volunteers performing a number of other gardening tasks. Afterwards, volunteers enjoyed a BBQ.
