Goldenrod Community Garden in Kitchissippi


Goldenrod Community Garden in Kitchissippi

(Theme 5 – Food, Theme 8 – Health)

Organization: Somerset West Community Health Centre and the Community Garden Network

Timeline for Completion: Start 2021 spring/summer

Objective:

Our vision is to create a large community-run garden in Kitchissippi that will provide garden plots for residents and local community groups to grow food.

The garden will contribute to a healthy community by creating more usable green space, increasing access to healthy food, and offering opportunities for community building through shared interests and activities.

Our objectives are to:
. Increase food security by helping people to grow their own food
. Build community by providing resources for other local organizations like the food centre
. Share knowledge about food gardening with others, including schools
. Encourage organic and permaculture principles through example
. Bring people together to enjoy a shared passion
. Explore the feasibility of a “food forest” and a butterfly garden
