Map to ReMediate at Eastview Community Park

Click the site map image below for a Google map to the site. 

Enter Eastview Community Park off Watson Road just south of Speedvale Avenue. From the end of the parking lot follow the red line on the site map, which is a service path, to the ReMediate site on the right, indicated by the white rectangle. You will see the bee house and a large water container marking the site.

ReMediate opening this Sunday, 2-4 PM!

The forecast looks good and everything should be ready to begin installing the quilt this Sunday. Bring a hat & water bottle as there is no shade at the site. Also bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit & sew.

The FREE SHUTTLE BUS will leave Guelph City Hall at 1:40 sharp to go to the Eastview Landfill. If you plan to drive, please note that the parking lot is off Watson Rd. near Speedvale, not on Eastview Rd. Here's a map that will help you find us. 

If you can't make it for the opening, you can participate in the installation over the next two weeks. I will be sewing Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Sunday, 10 AM - 3 PM, weather permitting, until June 8. Please let me know if you are coming one of these dates so I know to expect you. The closing event will be June 8, 2-4 PM.
