The People Garden Club

Location: The People Garden is a common garden space behind the Riverview Community Centre (90 Ashland Ave). The garden is located at the intersection of Darling St. and Balfour Ave (near Churchill Drive). See map below.

Schedule: We meet Monday and Wednesday evenings at 6:30. You also need to help out once a month on a Friday to fill the water cubes.

We built this garden in 2013 as part of the first year of the Building a Community Commons course. It was affectionately named the People Garden by kids in the local day care (they also made this sign). The garden boasts a hoop house, herb spiral, demonstration food forest,  wicking beds and hugel beds. We get our water from the Riverview Community Centre. Come hang out in this beautiful community space and learn about permaculture with us!
