community garden at false creek NEU
Yardworks is fully supportive of projects such as the community garden near the Neighbourhood Energy Utility in South False Creek. For this project we donated our premium blend Rainforest soil to the Creek Community Gardeners.
“A community garden at the Neighbourhood Energy Utility site creates an opportunity for residents in South False Creek/Fairview to take the lead in growing their own food and decreasing their carbon footprints. Community gardening is a great way to build a sense of community, local spirit and pride. It encourages teamwork and cooperation, provides a healthy means of getting exercise while meeting neighbours. When an individual participates in caring for the soil, tending plants, harvesting crops and cooking them, the necessity of a connection between sustaining ourselves and caring for the earth is undeniable.”
