It’s a time for planting and growth in the North End. On June 7, this lovely group of gardeners – plus half a dozen more – will build and install raised beds on a piece of land we’ve been allocated by HRM. It’s just south-east of the parking lot for Needham Park, off Union St. Currently it’s a mix of scrub, weeds, saplings and blueberry bushes – which we’ll keep! But there’s lots of room for 12 raised beds plus a community rhubarb patch.
We’re looking for help – and moral support, and transplants of herbs, and company – from the wider community. And so we’re doing the garden build as an #100in1day intervention Hope to see you Saturday afternoon!
Huge kudos to Progress in the Park who built their beds in Mulgrave Park on May 24. Paige Farah and Chelsea Tims talked about the community garden project on CBC radio. Their beds – by Home Harvest – are things of beauty and the community has lots of room to grow.
p.s. June 3, 9 a.m. at Veith House, will be the last North End Multi-Stakeholder Roundtable before September. It’s a great opportunity for organizations that serve North End Halifax to connect. The notes from the May roundtable are here
