With the help of the City of Richmond, Garratt Wellness Center, and a band of dedicated volunteers, a new community garden has been installed in Richmond.
The Garratt Garden is a 20-bed community garden located at 7504 Chelsea Place (near No. 2 Rd and Blundell)
Gardeners first heard about the different systems of community gardens that are in place in Vancouver and at Colony Farm Community Garden.
After a wonderful lunch, the gardeners got going and helped move the bark mulch and soil to finish off the garden.
Many thanks to everyone who helped make this a reality!
