Yesterday the G&L Group came with their machinery and expertise and prepared The Rail Garden for our groundbreaking on Earth Day this Sunday.

It was the first real physical change to the space as a result of months of organization, events and community gatherings.

Walking south through the Monarch Park Tunnel I was greeted with the scent of freshly turned soil and the site of a flattened prepared property. It was, to say the least, cathartic.

Please join us on Sunday for our first community work bee. We will be digging the allotment garden plots, sowing clover and drinking coffee together from 10:00 - 4:00 pm at which point we will be hosting a barbecue for the clean up crews in the neighbourhood and our volunteers.

Thank you for all your support.
