Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven, 
blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
We are sending you an update on events that are coming up this month!
Saturday, September 29 - 9 am to 12 noon

Here at Ignatius Jesuit Centre we love our bees, butterflies, flies, and beetles that do the very important work of pollinating our farm crops, community gardens, and flowering plants on the property. Eighty percent of flowering plants require pollinators, and the value of pollinators cannot be understated; pollinator species are in decline worldwide, and one of the factors contributing to this decline is habitat loss.

To help combat this habitat loss, and to show our awareness and appreciation for our pollinator species, the land crew is excited to announce that this fall, in collaboration with Pollination Guelph, we will be planting a 1500 square foot demonstration pollinator garden next to Loyola House.

Please join us! No cost to attend but space is limited. To register please contact Jaye Crawford, Grounds Assistant 519-993-6366.
