Great work was done on the design of our garden!  We have a truly unique plan in store (map to be revealed at a later date).  Suffice it to say that this mapped plan incorporates most, if not all of our brainstormed ideas.  Exciting!!

We also discussed phasing-in our garden (to prepare for growth) as follows:

  • PHASE 0 – Sign + a small demonstration garden on site
  • PHASE I – Approximately 16 beds, approximately 5×12 feet (60 sqft)
  • PHASE II – Approximately 16  more beds, approximately 5×12 feet (60 sqft)
  • FUTURE PHASES as needed.

In addition to the brainstorming ideas in the last post, the following ideas were discussed: herb garden, pallet garden, cold frame, benches/picnic tables, rain barrels.

At the next meeting we will be laying out our garden’s BYLAWS.  The bylaws will describe our culture, rules and guidelines so they are an important step in the development of the Renfrew Community Garden.  See you there!!
