Volunteer Work Shifts Changed since Sept 3rd.
The day-to-day maintenance of the garden (weeding, watering, staking, harvesting, etc.) is managed by volunteers working in teams. The weekly work groups start Sept 5, 2019, and are as follows:
Tuesdays 6:00 PM until it is dark
Friday 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Saturdays 9:30 AM – 12 Noon
Sundays 9 AM – 11 AM
For volunteers working on Tuesdays, we ask that you arrive before the customers so that we have time to discuss the evening’s work. This means arriving at 6:00 PM if possible, or even 5:30 PM if you can help with the harvest.
Harvested vegetables and herbs are sold to the public from a cart in the garden. The weekly sales times starting mid-June 2019 and ending late October 2019 are as follows:
- Tuesdays: 6:00 PM until it is dark.
- Saturdays: 10 AM – 11 AM
Save The Date! SEPTEMBER 21, 2019
Celebrating 10th anniversary of PNG Community
Please save this date: Saturday, September 21 from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM. We will be celebrating our 10th anniversary of planting!!! All volunteers and friends of the garden are welcome! Councillor John Filion will say a few words and some of our community partners will be there as well. We will have refreshments, cake, music, and art.
After the brief speech, visitors will be encouraged to stroll through the garden, and volunteers will be scattered in the various parts of the garden to answer questions and point out the various plants.
This is going to be a great event, and a chance to show off our wonderful garden to our neighbours. We look forward to seeing all of you in the garden for our anniversary!
