Volunteer landscapers needed to spruce up East Sooke Fire Hall

Helpers needed to lend a hand with planting, digging, removal of invasive vegetation

The East Sooke Fire Commission is looking for volunteers to help with landscaping the new East Sooke Fire Hall grounds.

Volunteers are needed to lend a hand with planning, digging, removal of invasive vegetation, as well as donate indigenous plants and grow cuttings or plants throughout the winter for transplanting in the spring.

“We need many more members of the community to volunteer as this is a large project,” said Axel Joosting, East Sooke Fire Commission spokesperson, adding that planning will take place over the winter and work will begin in early spring.

A special meeting will be held at the new East Sooke Fire Hall on Dec. 5 at 4 p.m.

The 11,000-square-foot, $2.5-million facility was completed last winter and became operational earlier this year, albeit with finishing touches, such as landscaping, yet to be completed.

For more information on volunteering for this project, please contact Axel Joosting at 250-642-4773, email at axel.joosting@shaw.ca or go online to eastsookefirecommission.ca.
