The Recreation and Leisure Services Department invites Village residents to sign up for one of 18 assigned 9’ X 15’ plots in the Community during the months of June – October. The cost for one plot is $25 + HST.
The garden is located behind the Forbes property along the New Maryland Highway (access is off Crown Avenue between civic numbers 22 and 34).
Community gardens create wonderful opportunities and benefit everyone. Through the community garden you can meet your neighbours, produce your own food, add beauty to the Village’s green space, reduce stress and increase your sense of wellness and belonging! 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 can grow a variety of plants in the garden including vegetables, fruits, herbs or flowers.
Spaces are limited and plots are reserved on a first come, first serve basis. For more information, please contact Michelle in the Recreation and Leisure Services Department at 458-6094 to learn more.
Note: Plots are typically available in early to mid-June, depending on the weather.
