News, Pictures and Fun from the Oliver Community Garden Society

The Arts Council has asked for more details before approving an expansion to the south end of the community garden. I will make a more detailed survey of the proposed area and see what sort of configurations would be possible within the space available. I would like to propose as part of the plan we include a commitment to at least two dedicated large beds for donations to the food bank. I feel this important in demonstrating our community garden’s commitment to our larger community and would also help when asking for support from businesses and institutions in Oliver; not to mention a worthwhile endeavor. As many of the existing beds are now in fairly rough shape and will need to be replaced in the next few years the expansion would help with logistics as members may need to be moved while their present beds are rebuilt. If any members have questions about, or ideas for, this proposed project please feel free to contact me or the other council board members (Lilli, Merton) Also any sources for cheaper or free supplies would be greatly appreciated….ed
