Started in the spring of 2006 by Wilfrid Laurier University graduate, Kyla Cotton, we are a group of committed individuals who volunteer their time to turn our urban landscape into a source of life and nutrition. We are so glad-full to receive funding through LSPIRG (Laurier Student's Public Interest Reserach Group) as well as land generously donated by Wilfird Laurier University.
Last growing season (2019) was busy at our Northdale site where we have a community garden. We built fencing around our plots at to keep our the kritters, with funding assistance from LSPIRG and Laurier's Sustainability Office. With the wonderuful help of Grand River Food Forestry, we also put in pollinator gardens between our plots to help bees and other pollinators, as well as increase the productivity of our garden. Funding for that project was provided by the Waterloo Region's Community Environmental Fund. Much appreciations also to Waterloo Region BlueDot, the University of Waterloo's Society for Ecological Restoration and a number of other environmentally-focused organizations and individuals for helping out with planting.
