Behind the church building you will find our Community Gardens. There are 23 garden plots, 16 of which are available for annual rental by parishioners and community members on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration for the year occurs in March, and preference is given to previous renters to renew their plots, before the remainder are made available. The other six plots include a two flower plots for Chancel Guild, a plot for the annual Plant Sale that occurs at Family Fun Day, and four "communal plots" where the gardeners grow strawberries, raspberries and rhubarb to be enjoyed by all members of the Community Garden. Individuals are welcome to become a Community Garden Member, even if they are not currently renting a plot, and take advantage of the Community camaraderie and the prodigious fruit production in the communal plots.
This garden is funded by an anonymous donation earmarked specifically for growing vegetables, by annual fees from plot renters, and by the Diocese of BC Visioning Fund. Garden members adhere to the “St George's Parish Community Garden Rules and Guidelines”. Interested in joining? To enquire about garden plot availability and/or to get on the waiting list, please email us.
The Grounds Gardens
Around the church there are three major gardens: The Front Garden, The Memorial Walk Garden, and The Hall Garden. These spaces are lovingly maintained entirely by volunteers, and the team is always looking for a few extra folks to get their hands dirty. If you'd like to help maintain the gardens, please contact us to express your interest.
