Offer input on proposed Friendship Park community garden

June 23, 2016 -

Come to Friendship Park to offer your input on a proposed community garden to the City of Kingston.

Bring a chair or blanket and join your neighbours and City staff at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 30 in the park on Carlisle Street – or, if it's raining, at 99 York St. 

Learn about the benefits of community gardens, how they operate and how you can help establish or use the one proposed for Friendship Park.  You will have an opportunity to offer your ideas and input on this garden, which could be dug this summer.

Community gardens are shared and maintained by neighbours who use them to grow vegetables, flowers, good health and friendships.

Can't make it to the meeting?  Submit your written comments by noon on Friday, July 8 to Lilith Wyatt, community garden network coordinator, at gardens@lovingspoonful.org. You may also contact the garden organizing committee at 613-876-9895 or friendshipparkgarden@gmail.com  if you have further questions or would like to become involved.
