Community Garden Project

posted in: Beautifcation

A community garden project on its initial start-up phase is underway in Sandy Hill! Basic idea – a communal garden without plots where people get together to work on the entire area twice a week, and share and take home produce when some become available.

There is property at the back of All Saints Sandy Hill Anglican Church that they have graciously offered to the group to garden in. The location is at the intersection of Laurier Avenue East and Blackburn Avenue.

The project will go ahead depending on grants, and soil testing results.

If anyone is interested in helping, one can do one or more of the following things:

1) Join this Community Garden Committee! – Contact Caroline John at stating that you would like to join this committee and we can pool our resources. Best for those living in or close to Sandy Hill.
2) Spread the word! – Forward this information to your friends and neighbours, especially the ones living in Sandy Hill.
4) Send a Letter of support! – Send a letter of support and garden with us this summer. Letters of support are needed from residents and/or people who work, live or school in the area.
