Youth Take Initiative in Community Garden

[rev_slider alias= »garden-october »]

If you haven’t already seen the Entry Island’s community garden you really should. Presently, within our greenhouse we have various herbs, different vegetables, and an observation hive to allow people to see how the bees are working. Alongside this, we have recently planted various fruit trees to truly complete the project. This could not have been possible without the generous contributions of the Anglican Foundation grant we received.

To top it all off, Braiden Clarke, a 15 year old youth, and Zachary Aitkens, a 13 year old youth, did an amazing job at constructing a shelter around th outdoor garden plot! We also had a remarkable group of people, ranging from 6 to 76 years old, participate in the maintenance and growth of the garden throughout the summer months. Even though the season started late, due to a cold and wet July, we still managed to harvest and distribute a few vegetables among the group. Our next goal is to construct a chicken tractor, complete with chickens, harvest honey, and create a small rest area for tourists and the community.
