Patterson Park Community Garden aspires to be part of the solution to end hunger. To that end we would like to build a Giving Garden in plot C7. We are hoping it will become a place for learning and sharing, not just among ourselves but with the larger community.
There is hunger in our neighbourhood though it is well hidden. Most of the children who attend our local school, for example, qualify to receive free or reduced cost lunch plans.
Step One is to build the plot. We will be using a method that requires no money at all to demonstrate that gardening does not have to be a rich man’s sport. Behind the scenes, members have been gathering material and we are now set to begin. Everyone, including the general public is invited to attend the construction ‘party’ tentatively scheduled for March 24 at noon.
