Creating Community Gardens Seminar

On Sunday June 1st, the Environmental Youth Alliance (EYA), helped Cedar Cottage Gardeners take a big leap forward in creating our neighbourhood's newest community garden!

We mapped out our community assets and made plans to obtain soil and compost and start planting flowering herbs in the Purple Planter Boxes next Sunday June 8th, from 2-4 pm. Everyone is welcome to join in, and if you have any flowering herb plants to contribute, please bring them along.

Cedar Cottage Garden is located at the Austrian Heritage Plaza under the skytrain line at Victoria Dr. and Hull St.
