COMMUNITY GARDEN UPDATE
As you have probably noticed, the Shorecrest garden team has been hard at work creating a wonderful garden for our community. Thank you to everyone on the team for donating your time and expertise, and a special thank you to our local garden expert, Ameilia Savinova, who has piloted this project. Since becoming involved in our garden, Amelia has gone on to become a Master Gardener and her vision to expand Shorecrest’s community garden is taking shape. She has done a great job bringing members together on the project. The new garden is now the “Connie West Community Garden” in memory of its previous caretaker who spent many hours developing and nurturing a place for the community to access fresh produce. Unfortunately, due to the COVID 19 pandemic we have been unable to meet as a community for our usual events, but we hope this outdoor project will create a place where our members can wander through and watch the garden grow while maintaining social distance. The garden team plans to harvest and provide fresh produce to the community each Wednesday as it becomes available. We already have some plants available so watch for signs outside the garden bus stop/ produce stand!
