New Bin for Finished Compost

Compost bin number three was assembled yesterday. This bin is for finished, screened compost only. Boards on one side are easily removed to make it easier to remove compost.




Gardens Update

A new compost bin was added to the gardens today – please put your compost weeds in the new bin, while the first bin completes the compost cycle.

As we transition to the new Societies Act, we have some housekeeping to do with the Gardens Society bylaws. A general meeting is required to approve the streamlined bylaws – you will be receiving an e-mail soon, with some date and time options for a general meeting.

Productive Saturday

Lots of work done in the gardens today – welcome new members.


Irrigation repairs coming soon….

Your irrigation tech needed a little assistance today to access parts and tools to do repairs at the community garden.


Mushroom compost added today………

Waking up the gardens………

Spring is here, we have new members, repaired raised beds, and augmented soil thanks to Kelly at Pacific Silica. There are two large beds and a few smaller beds available. Season rental is $25 per large bed, $15 per small bed, plus $5 annual membership in the society.

Bed rental includes automatic irrigation and access to garden tools.

If you wish to rent one of the remaining beds, contact Heather asap.

Join us Saturday April 28th at 11:00am for a work party and orientation.



Looking for new members………..

We need new members, and there are postcards out now to help in the search.
