Community gardens improve the users’ health through increased fresh vegetable consumption and by providing a venue for exercise. Community gardens break down isolation through creating a social community and also bring gardeners closer in touch with their source of food. Other benefits include sharing food production knowledge with the wider community and donating excess crops to others such as food banks. Community gardening brings people together…come out and meet others… and share in this positive experience.
The garden will be located on the Health Centre property and consists of 25 raised concrete planters. Targeted opening is the May long weekend. Plots will be on a first come first served basis to a maximum of two per person. The annual fee will be $10/plot. Please call the Health Centre to register for your own plot.
