Our community garden is situated in a busy area in the Fraserlands development. Although the garden plots are leased to individuals, we see the garden as a part of the larger community.
This year we organized a free herb give away. We were aware that our communal herb garden was getting over grown and decided that rather than waste the fruits of our labour, we would bundle them and offer them to people passing by. We packaged over 50 bundles and put them on a bench telling people to help themselves. All but a few bundles were quickly taken.
We would like people in the neighbourhood to know who we are and what the community garden is about. We want people to enjoy the space.
Last year we partnered with someone in the neighbourhood, who organized a rock painting event with the neighbourhood kids. We all painted rocks and there were placed in our berry patch.
This year we intended to do the same but because of weather we will be doing things seperately. We still hope to meet other neighbours passing by and offer them hotdogs etc. and engage in conversation with them about the garden and the neighbourhood.
Hopefully this will take place on Sunday October 30, 2016.
