Community gardens bring neighbourhood residents together
When Lynn MacCallum helped out with the Cliff Bungalow Community Garden during its construction in 2014, it was with a view towards having some garden space of her own.
“We are in a condo, and like many people in the neighbourhood, we didn’t have access to growing food in our own gardens,” said MacCallum. “I think a lot of people in the garden live in an apartment, so other than growing a couple of herbs in a pot on a balcony, there wasn’t much opportunity.
“Growing food was foremost, but what has happened is this community that has been created, which is pretty awesome.”
