“The vision must be followed by the venture. It’s not enough to stare up the stairs – we must step up the stairs” – Vance Hayner
Yesterday, we went for a walk in the heart of Mississauga, although it quickly seemed like we were in the middle of nowhere. The Riverwood Conservancy is a treasure that I was not aware that our city possesses. As stated in their website:
“The Riverwood Conservancy is a volunteer- and member-based charity that provides programs and services to the community in nature and environmental education, stewardship of Riverwood, and gardening and horticulture.”
The mission set out by the group is to create and maintain a public garden, park and nature reserve in the midst of a growing city. It is doing a wonderful job so far, and is truly a beautiful place.
