Monday Morning Varsity Lakes Community Garden
Almost two years on and Varsity Lakes Community Garden is feeling like home for so many garden regulars.
The abundance of food and fruit trees has its own beauty.
The taro in the new swale already looks lush surrounded by lemon grass and pioneer tomatoes and nasturtiums.
A sunny Monday morning brought out many gardeners including myself to nurture their plots.I was excited to see the season's first broccoli forming and the abundance of pak choy that resulted from a randon throwing of packages seeds purchased at a local chinese shop.
With new seedlings starting to show promise it was a great time to compare growing techniques.
I value my garden plot for the many lessons it has taught.
With people from so many different cultural backgrounds a rich sharing of information takes place not only on how to grow foods but also how to prepare new foods.
