Photos/Video: Community Garden Opened

June 8, 2012

Yesterday [June 7] Greenrock hosted the official opening of the Catlin Community Garden located at the Sunshine League property on King Street in Hamilton.

The Catlin Community Garden is the first of several gardens proposed to be developed over the course of the next 18 months as part of Greenrock’s Healthy Harvest project. The goal of Healthy Harvest is to revive interest in local food by building and maintaining sustainable community gardens in partnership with Bermudian landowners and with the support of community volunteers and local organizations.

Greenrock’s Healthy Harvest team will plan the community gardens so that they meet the needs of the immediate community and are sustainable over the long-term with community resources; this means that each garden will be quite different in scope and content.

The Catlin Community Garden on the Sunshine League property is comprised of two produce planting areas and a section of fruit trees. The produce gardens are maintained by Greenrock’s Healthy Harvest team headed by Omari Dill with a band of enthusiastic volunteers, and boast a healthy crop of tomatoes, peppers, squash, cabbage, onions, zucchini, okra, corn and cucumbers.

      A garden in every neighbourhood…what a great idea for community spirit! Hopefully no ‘nightfarming’ happens when the veggies get ripe.
