Grower's Dozen Community Garden
We believe that through gardening we can connect neighbours and build a thriving community. The youths in our community will benefit from the opportunity to learn a new set of skills, as well as connect with positive role models from the area.
In February 2016, we gathered together a group of likeminded community members that were interested in starting a community garden and we did start one!
May 10, 2018 (tentative) - First guest lecture for Gardening 101 Program
September 15, 2018 - Harvest Dinner
In our first year, we partnered with a local youth group and built a small garden consisting of 4 raised garden beds and one squash patch within the community league land. We also took the initiative in beautifying the league grounds.
Who doesn't like ending the growing season with a party!? We harvested the produce that we grew and hosted a free dinner for whole community. We had a great turnout of around 80 neighbours at the dinner! We promise we will only serve the freshest!
