Community Garden

UPDATE:  Please note that our Community Garden Plots are now fully booked for this Spring/Summer 2024.  Thank you to those who all applied and happy gardening.   We will also be building two new planters in honour of Colleen and the late Peter Champagne.

Glenwood Community Centre is proud to continue to offer our raised garden beds to our community again this year.  We currently offer 10 raised garden beds which are 8’ x 3’ in size.  Each raised garden will be assigned on a first come-first served basis.  Interested gardeners who do not receive a raised garden bed will be maintained on a wait list.  Raised garden beds are non-transferable.

 

Community Garden applications will take place commencing January 15, 2024 and will be done online.  The application will be posted on this page at that time.  Although there is no fee for you to use the garden, we will require a $20 garden shed key deposit at the time of acceptance of the garden bed.  This fee will be refunded to you at the end of the gardening season and once the key has been returned to our General Manager, Coralie.

 

We will notify individuals of acceptance of their applications as applications come in.  Once your application has been approved and your $20 key shed deposit has been received, we will make arrangements for you to come in to sign the Community Garden Contract in April.  The Contract will contain your plot number and you will receive your key at that time.

A condition of use of the Community Garden is that you attend to your garden at all times which includes weeding, watering and picking vegetables once they are ready.  Failure to do so may result in your ability to secure a bed the following year. 

If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jaimie at assistantglenwoodcc@gmail.com.

We are in the process of creating plaques for each planter in honour of the following community members which will be completed by the end of this summer:

Shelley Waddell                                 Bob Brown

Phyllis Cook                                      Joan MacDonald

Patty VadeBonCoeur                         Dan Nicholson
Rhonda Cook                                     Peter Elwick

Jackie Bergman                                 Brian Mayes

Colleen & Peter Champagne             Marcel Lemire
