This year sees a new face joining the fold with Roby Dyck of Natural Lane Farms donating Orgunique organic fertilizer for the garden, as well as offering advice for getting the best results from his products.
This year's garden will feature a plethora of flowers as well as cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and leaf lettuce to help supply patients with fresh, local produce. The community garden members are also looking at planting green onions at the Metropolitan site this year to see how the crop will fare.
The planting date for this year's community garden took place on Thursday, May 26.
Volunteers will soon be supplied with their schedules and will work throughout the summer to ensure the health of the garden, as well as to harvest the produce.
To get involved in the Community Garden or for more information, contact Renee Hopes at 519-254-5577 ext.33184 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
