Willow Point’s first community garden, the Laughing Willow is now accepting memberships for the 2011/12 season.

Their vision is to have a thriving, organic, family friendly, “accessible” place for the community to garden and learn. A large Grow a Row garden will produce food for the hungry in our community and give non-members a chance to get their hands in the dirt. Each member will have their own raised garden bed and access to shared herbs and nut trees. Children’s gardens and wheelchair accessible gardens are available upon request.

They are working under Greenways Land Trust to see that this garden is a huge success. Construction is slated to begin in March with gardens available in April/May. If you are interested in becoming a member or volunteer, contact Chelsea @ 250-926-0279 or chelsea.holley@hotmail.com. You can also find them on facebook, search for Laughing Willow Community Garden. Get involved now and help give shape to the vision.
