Work continues on the garden boxes being built for the Charstate Community Garden.
On Tuesday, members one of the Immigrant Welcome Centre’s language classes braved drippy conditions to screw together garden boxes.
“We’re out volunteering in the community and eventually we’re going to put in some gardens ourselves and we’re going to do it as sort of a group community garden as a class and so we offered to help out to get the beds finished,” said Chris Gunn, Immigrant Welcome Centre LINC Coordinator and Instructor.
Gunn thought the experience of volunteering on a project and working together would be good for people developing their English language skills.
This was another in a series of build days Greenways Land Trust has been holding to get the garden ready for planting this spring. They target date for planting is the May 24th long weekend.
Greenways Land Trust came to an agreement with the city in 2017 to oversee the development and operation of the site at Charstate Park in Campbell River.
