Saturday May 19th was a great success for the Clayton Park community, our clients and many Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia staff. We successfully built 15 garden beds twice as fast as we had expected. More than 150 community members came to help build the beds, to ask questions and to enjoy some BBQ food together. There were 40 applications submitted from families/individuals wanting a garden plot and although there are only 15 beds, this waitlist gives us more reason to work on building two more community gardens in the area.
It was quite wonderful to see everyone come out to support and help build a stronger community.
Thank you to everyone who was present that day!
