The Project Plan and Phase 1 of the build

Our initial design and Project Plan has been generated, including a large circle of raised garden beds, an herb garden, a food forest, community support pergola, open leisure spaces, compost area and a utility space.

A large poster of the proposed design for the garden/gathering space is available for viewing at the Parkdale Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays, along with some concept boards to help articulate the individual elements of the design. Comments, ideas and design thinking are welcome. You can express yourself directly to the committee by contacting Audrey Smith – Garden Chair.

If you aren’t able to attend the market you can also see a design by stopping in to Executive Director Bill Biccum’s office at the Community Centre.
