Sandy Hill group adding more green to Somerset Street East
Ottawa Citizen

Matthew Pearson, Ottawa Citizen, September 23, 2016

Armed with shovels, spades, wheelbarrows and watering cans, a group of Sandy Hill residents are transforming several patches of asphalt along Somerset Street East into blossoming gardens full of perennials, shrubs and trees.

Inspired by what they’ve seen in Montreal and Gatineau — where recent efforts have spruced up some boulevards and curb extensions — members of the Sandy Hill Tree Group are working with the city on the unique greenscaping pilot project.
