Thank you from the Groves Amphitheatre
Theatre culture meets horticulture

Jan 20, 2021

There are so many people to thank for helping us get to where we are today, but we'd like to take this opportunity to thank on key partner in particular: the Fenelon Falls Horticultural Society.

In building our venue amid a grove of trees, we felt it vital to enhance the arboreal canopy, both to maintain a sense of seclusion and to add to the natural beauty of the site.  So we asked the Horticultural Society for advice, and their response was as magnificent as it was enthusiastic.

With the help of a $15,00 grant from the Fenelon Legacy CHEST Fund contributed by the City of Kawartha Lakes, the society's team began work on landscaping the space back in October.  Using a variety of plants, shrubs, bushes and trees, they set out to bring a unique beauty to the natural vistas around the open-air performance space itself.

"We had lots of fun with the planting.  It's a great group, " says society member Kathy Armstrong.

The plants may be dormant for now, but come spring all those blooms and blossoms will burgeon forth as a lovely reward for a hard-working team.  We can't wait to see them!
