NEW MARYLAND COMMUNITY GARDEN – NEW LOCATION FOR 2019!

Sunrise Estates Park, off Weston Ave.

 

As a result of a planned residential development, the current garden location (off of Crown Avenue) will be temporarily closed for this year and a new garden established in Sunrise Estates Park adjacent to the Park property.  Planning for the garden is currently underway; the new location will have the same amenities as the Crown Avenue location (same size plots, water storage, fencing, on-site parking, etc.) Current gardeners will be given “first pick” for a plot then remaining spaces will be assigned.

The current garden has 18 plots; if there is additional interest, we can expand the new garden at the Sunrise location as we do not want to turn anyone away.

The cost for a 9’ X 15’ plot is $25 + HST.

Contact Michelle in the Recreation and Leisure Services Department at 458-6094 or send her an e-mail, michelle.sawler@vonm.ca to reserve your plot or learn more about the community garden program.

It is our intent to have the garden available by early to mid-June, weather permitting.  Community gardening is a healthy, inexpensive activity for everyone that can bring you closer to nature and allow you to interact with others in a socially, meaningful and physically productive way.  You may grow a variety of plants in the garden including vegetables, fruits, herbs or flowers.
