A big thank you to Holland, Darren, Kevin, Lance and Tim who took an idea discussed at a neighbourhood meeting and just started working!

If you want to grow something at your Community Garden – it’s simple – come and claim a plot and start growing!  Flowers, herbs and veggies are welcome!

Bring Shovels and Forks If You Have Them for the Work Party!!

Everybody Welcome
