With our Neighbourhood Small Grants we built two new picnic tables and a bench for our community garden.  
The new additions to our garden have been a big hit with our gardeners and community members who use the space. The day after they were built, one of our gardeners walked by the garden and saw an ESL class sitting at the picnic tables enjoying a lunch in the garden. 
We held two events for gardeners to come help us build and paint our new tables.  The painting was especially fun – we used spray paint, regular paint, and chalkboard paint. We now have some very colourful tables at the garden that feature animal stencils and two chalkboards that anyone can write or draw on.  
** Note to coordinator: We have photos but apparently they are too small. If you’d like photos for the post, please contact me.

We believe the best people to effect change in a community are the ones within it. And when we can make money less of an issue in doing so, it allows so many more kinds of ideas to shine.
