Community garden on Glenwood Drive officially open


TRURO - The Glenwood Drive Community Garden is officially open.

The Glenwood Drive Community Garden officially opened on Saturday with a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring, from left, Karla Winham, Rev. Dan Brown, Rebecca Sooksom, Pam Haldane from Communities in Bloom, councillor Tom Chisolm, and Andrew Alkema.

The garden, along with John Calvin Christian Reformed Church, hosted a Select Nova Scotia IncrEDIBLE Picnic on Saturday at the church. The meal, which highlighted food from local growers and producers, served as an opening ceremony of the garden.

It took three years of planning before the garden opened. Eight Truro and area families tend to several plots. Funding has come from church fundraisers, plot fees, donations from local businesses and a grant from Truro's Communities in Bloom committee.

“We’re very pleased with the enthusiastic response we’ve had from all our partners and the support we’ve received,” said Pastor Dan Brown in a news release. “We’re very excited for this official opening and are looking forward expanding the garden and building community around the gifts of soil and seed.”
