Community Garden Invitation 2019

March 22, 2019

Community Garden Invitation

We, on the gardening committee, are busy planning for the summer of 2019. With spring just around the corner, we are now recruiting new gardeners! If you have ever strolled through the garden and noticed how pretty it is, and wondered what it might be like to have a bed of your own, now is your chance! We invite you to join us for the season ahead. We have a number of 4 x 8 beds and one wheelchair accessible 2 x 6 bed still available.

It’s super easy to sign up. All you have to do is send an email to communitygarden@winstonheights.ca indicating that you’d like to reserve your bed.

There are lots of reasons to participate in community gardening. It gives you a reason to spend time outside, and it gives you opportunities to meet your fellow gardeners and community members.  Community gardeners share a sense of pride and wellbeing that comes from planting, nurturing, and harvesting, and from a sense of belonging in the larger community. They enjoy the satisfaction of having contributed to building and maintaining an incredibly beautiful space in the neighbourhood. There are as many reasons to garden as there are gardeners, but mostly, it’s fun and it’s good for you. Come join us and we’ll show you all the reasons to love gardening.

Here’s what you need to know to become a community gardener:

Bed rental fees are $50 annually ($25 for a wheelchair accessible bed) plus a six-hour service commitment to the garden per season.

Gardeners must have a valid WHM community membership (free to community members and available through the community website) If you live outside the community membership costs $10.

Garden payment info: cheque drop-off at the community hall or email transfer to communitygarden@winstonheights.ca  The security question should be, “what city do we live in?” Please indicate the purpose of payment in the message area.

More detailed information is available in our Rental Agreement and Garden Policies documents on the Community Garden page.

We are always happy to welcome new gardeners!
