WHAT'S

HAPPENING

 

COMMUNITY GARDENING

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.

      Margaret Mead

Community gardens are part of the sharing economy and have the potential of providing many benefits to the community, visitors and society as a whole.

 

The Beaverton Garden Club (BGC) has entered in to a partnership with the Beaverton and District Conservation Club and has installed 4 raised garden beds on the Fox Park property in Beaverton (at Simcoe Street and the railway, adjacent to the Beaver River).  In addition, 16 existing planters in the Beaverton Harbour area have been repurposed.  This past summer, all these gardens were planted with vegetables and the bounty given to the Brock Food Bank.  Members of the BGC tended to and managed the gardens.  This project is part of our goal to address food security concerns in Brock Township.  

If you are interested in helping with this initiative, please contact us.  You must be a member to volunteer. Any help will be greatly appreciated.  We are also looking for a member(s) of the BGC to provide a stewardship role for these community garden projects.  This would involve organizing tasks and working with volunteers to ensure the success of the project.  Let us know if you are interested!
