Excerpt:

The new garden was approved Tuesday night by the city’s board of parks and recreation.

The garden will be north of the splash pad (near the park’s border with the neighbouring property, Duffus Funeral Home).

The idea is to create a large vegetable garden with 21 plots. Each plot will be large enough to grow produce to feed a family of four.

The city will be removing the sod and preparing the land for the neighbours, who will do the gardening.

Several of the plots are going to be tended by people living in the neighbourhood.

Natalie Stephenson of Prince St. will be co-ordinating the garden with Chantilly McKinnon of Westcott St.
