The work will begin at a work bee on April 22nd 2017 from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. All welcome to come out and lend a hand. There will be eight raised beds in total and individuals, families or groups interested in growing flowers, vegetables or greenery may simply email or call to get on the Urban Garden Plot Lottery list.
This association encompasses the general area between Wellington Street W – Inshes- to Queen Street to the Via train tracks.
“We encourage all to lend a hand and get involved in the Urban Garden project. This is a great opportunity to get to know your neighbours and get learn more about growing flowers and vegetables. We are currently looking for both volunteers to help with the installation of the beds and families, individuals and groups to occupy a urban garden plot,” comments McGuire.
