The greenhouse is located just south east of the recreation centre along the fire lane access path. It is approximately 18 metres sq. (200 ft. sq.) and was built January 2008 by the ‘Green Force’ TV show and gifted to the Friends with the help of then current Councillor, Joe Pantalone.
At the time there was a green house committee with use and access coordinated by a volunteer for the small dedicated group. With rules and such to keep it a clean, safe and functioning condition. Space was limited and short-term use for things like seedlings etc. are encouraged.

Community Garden update Sept. 19, 2022
Most of us have noticed the metal fencing is up. We do not have a timeline yet from Parks as to next steps. We are awaiting word from them and will update everyone once we have. It’s an inviting space, but please no dogs/pets are allowed or using space for activities other than what is is planned for. The ground/earth is best kept as neutral as possible for pending food – vegetables and plants! We understand people are excited to find out how to be a part of the gardens! In this meanwhile, you may email via the website contact page – important to select ‘greenhouse’ for the subject line. The volunteer leads and/or coordinator can collect names/emails of those interested.

We will keep you posted here and on our socials as things progress!
