3 New Community Gardens

We are in the early development stages for two new community gardens on Horley St. and Cheyenne St. (respectively). Details of this project can be found in the previous post.

The Environmental Youth Alliance is facilitating the creation of a third new community garden in the Renfrew Collingwood Neighbourhood. The garden will be at the corner of East 24th Ave. and Vanness Ave. and will be called C.R.O.W. Point Garden.

There are 15 plots available for local residents (which have already mostly been claimed) and there are 15 plots available free of charge to local youth and community organizations.

If interested, please attend the upcoming consultation meeting:

EYA is a grassroots organization that provides youth with meaningful skill building opportunities in the environmental sector. One of their main areas of interest is Urban Agriculture; they have been creating gardens since 1993.
