The Steering Committee and Cookes-Portsmouth Church are still finalizing the requirements for a formal land use contract. At our meeting this week, the Committee drafted a plan and timeline to present to the church Board.
We hope to incorporate several family plots, communal plots for larger crops like potatoes and squash, a shared herb garden, and an accessible raised bed. We'll also include a tasting garden where church-goers and neighbours may feel free to pick a few nibbles to sample.
Our goal, with help from the neighbourhood, is to have the garden beds ready to plant before the Victoria Day weekend.
In the mean time, please don't dump any leaves or clean fill into the city green bins. We'll be looking for lots of organic matter to mulch into the garden beds!
