What’s Happening Now

Sir John Carling site for new Civic Hospital

The Spring Newsletter has arrived! Visit our Calendar for all upcoming Events.

Friends continue to urge protection of the Farm’s public spaces
in a statement from the board of directors on the Sir John Carling site,
in letters to the NCC and Minister McKenna,
and in comments about the baseline rapid transit plan on the Farm.
“It’s a research facility. It’s a public garden. It is a heritage site. We would like to see it stay that way.”

Merivale Shelterbelt
