Early in 2016 a few residents in the Whitefield Ave got together to pose the idea of starting a new community garden on a patch of grass near their homes. They approached Nourish, found out that the land belonged to the City of Peterborough, and got started working together to get a new garden growing.
1. They’re good for us, and our communities!
Community gardens are about more than just growing food. By increasing the number of local community gardeners and available garden space, families and individuals are able to grow fresh, healthy produce for very little money, green previously underused areas, increase local food security, get to know and interact with their neighbours, and work together to enhance the communities where they live.
Are you interested in learning how to grow and save your own seeds?
Jill Bishop, long-time seed saver & our Community Food Facilitator will be hosting and co-facilitating 3 hands-on interactive Seed Saving Workshops this September.
