A Community Garden
In your Hunt Club NeighbourhoodFeb 21, 2021 - By Christine Johnson
Community gardens are spreading in Hunt Club and there is a reason for that. We want to ensure food security for all of us, now and into the future. Learning to grow our own food is a local action that helps with this objective.
If ever you were thinking about starting a community garden in your Hunt Club neighbourhood, and were wondering how to go about it, why not come out and meet us on Saturday, May 15 (2-4 pm) at 3347 McCarthy Rd, in behind the Emmanuel Apostolic Church? We’ll be having our official Maudlin Matilda McEwan Community Garden opening. All our gardeners will be present and we’d be happy to share with you how we got this garden ‘in the ground’, with veggies growing last summer.
There are all kinds of spaces suitable for accommodating more community gardens in Hunt Club, including local parks, school yards, on site at your condo or co-op complex, and other places.
If this is a project you would like to make happen, come talk to us. Talk to your neighbours. Talk to Councillor Brockington. Contact Just Food’s Community Gardening Network: https://justfood.ca/community-gardening-network/ . There are all kinds of people to help you get your community garden started. It’s hard work , … AND … it’s fun!
