The 2015 gardening season has begun! All garden plots at the Cavell Park Community Garden have now been assigned. If you forget your plot number, please contact us. It is still early in the season and sometimes plots become available again. If you would like to added to our waiting list, please fill out a registration form found on our documents page.
There will be a Cavell Garden workday this Saturday, June 6th, from 1pm to 4pm. (Raindate on Sunday).
A small group will meet on Sunday, for those who can't make Saturday (no one is expected to attend both days). Again 1pm - 4pm.
Please try to make Saturday if you can as that is the main day. There is lots to do, so please come lend a hand.
We will split up into teams:
1) Communal beds and flower bed team initially led by Laura on Saturday (We will break up into 7 smaller teams which will each be led by someone different)
2) Compost team led by Sarah on Saturday
3) Build and repair team led by Dan on Saturday and Michael on Sunday
Regardless of what team you are on, anyone who is interested will still get a chance to be involved with the communal bed discussion.
If you attend on either Saturday or Sunday, your name will be entered in a draw to win a $10 gift certificate to the St. John's Farmers' Market.
As always, bring drinking water, gloves, and tools. If you can, shovels, wheelbarrows and rock rakes will also come in handy! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Cavell is a 100% volunteer run community garden. All gardeners are asked to participate in maintaining the entire garden and communal beds, not just your plot. Garden Work Days are essential to the health and function of Cavell.
Items you should bring if you have them:
Feel free to bring a lunch or snack to share. Gracie Joe’s Cafe, Belbin’s Grocery Store and International Flavours restaurant are two minutes up the street, so coffee, food and bathrooms are available nearby!
Kids are welcome, Cavell is a large park and has swings and a slide. Bring a frisbee or a game and your kids will love it. Please note, dogs are only allowed in the garden if on leash at all times.
Happy gardening everyone!
