Community Garden: Plots Available Now

Fellow gardeners: Now that warmer weather is here it is time to start planning the garden season: buying seeds, starting plants indoors and envisioning fresh organic produce on our tables. It is hard to beat the pleasure of knowing you have grown it yourself and eaten it on the same day it is harvested. It tastes so good!

The Mayne Island Community Garden, located behind the Community Centre, offers a chance to garden in a sunny deer proof environment with water available (saved from the Community Centre roof).

In addition to us each having our own plot there are communal beds tended by designated members. The produce from these beds is available for all members to enjoy.

"Work" parties are held during the growing season and afford an opportunity to meet and socialize with your fellow gardeners, followed by delicious seasonal snacks. This year we have some garden plots available waiting for new gardeners to tend to them. The cost is $20/year. In addition, membership in the Community Centre is $5 if you are not already a member.

If you want to get your hands in the dirt and grow some food for yourself at the Community Garden please contact Diane (250) 539-5079 or Jeannine (250) 539-9998.
