Join us at the Sharing Square Community Garden for the 2016 growing season! The garden is located outside of the Municipal Building at 151 King Street in Chester. Sharing gardens are different than many community gardens where individuals or families rent separate plots. Instead, a sharing garden is managed collectively by a group and the food is available to anyone who needs it, regardless of whether or not they have contributed time, materials, or labour. Any surplus vegetables are donated to the Lighthouse Food Bank.
The garden is run by the Nourish Community Garden Cooperative; a group of volunteers who are passionate about growing fresh, healthy food for the community. Our goals include:
We welcome you to join us in planting, tending and harvesting this season! We are seeking new members for our organizing team, as well as folks who want to drop by once and a while to water the garden throughout the summer.
