Kids with Youth Extra Support prepare to build garden boxes during a project at a community garden on Thursday.

Join the work bee Saturday for community garden

Volunteers with the Chilliwack Community Garden on Wells Road will be heading to a Saturday morning work party on Aug. 13.

It’s a vital community project slowly coming to fruition.

Volunteers with the Chilliwack Community Garden on Wells Road will be heading to a Saturday morning work party on Aug. 13.

“We will continue building high and low raised beds, stacking plots and planning for growth,” says Rachel Poupere, project coordinator with Food Matters Chilliwack.

Some tools will be on-hand but more are welcome, such as: chop saw and table, extension cords, hammers, pry bar, dill and bits, shovels, hoses, tape measure, scissors, first aid kit, lumber, water and sunblock.

Kel-Mor Enterprises is generously building a roadway to provide garden access, says Poupere, “and while this is being completed the west side of the garden will have to wait.”

The first work party in July was attended by project partners with Food Matters Chilliwack and Chilliwack Society for Community Living (CSCL) who are creating the garden together.

Community garden enthusiasts are asked to meet at the garden site, north of The Mathieson Centre, 45195 Wells Rd. (Corner of Wells Rd. & Sunshine Dr.) on Saturday, Aug. 13 beginning at 8 a.m.
