New Community Garden in Fort Richmond – Plots Still Available!

I am very pleased to announce that we have just opened a new community garden in Fort Richmond!  I worked closely with community residents as well as the City Parks Department to establish this much needed amenity in the South Winnipeg-St. Norbert Ward.  There’s nothing like home grown veggies on your kitchen table!

Located just behind Margaret Grant Pool (685 Dalhousie), this new garden is referred to as an “allotment garden” by the City of Winnipeg.  There’s more great news –  some plots are still available to rent! 

These beautiful, new plots use a fresh, four-way-mix amended soil and measure 40’ x 8’.  Anyone willing to garden can rent a plot on a first come, first served basis. Individuals are responsible for planting and maintaining their own plot. Garden plots are rented from May to October and plot rentals may be renewed each year. Rentals are $46.20 per season, which includes one till per season.
