Meeting Minutes – May 6, 2016

When: 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Where: Renfrew Community Centre Picnic Tables
In attendance: Lisa, Heike, Aysia, Samantha, Ken, Carmen (SJS), Julianne (BGCC)
Regrets: Isabelle, Christine

The first half of the meeting was lead by Carmen representing Stanley Jones School who toured us through the SJS gardens.  We are discussing doing volunteer work by weeding the gardens at Stanley Jones School.  In exchange, Stanley Jones School would donate a dollar amount towards the Renfrew Community Garden.  We are currently evaluating this opportunity to ensure that the RCG would be able to complete the amount of work necessary to fulfill our commitment to SJS.

The next grant that we will be applying for this month is another Co-op Community Spaces program.

On April 26, 2016, the RCA (Renfrew Community Association) added another chair to the executive committee to represent the Renfrew Community Garden.  Lisa Mulder was nominated and voted into this new position!

The RCG is planning to move a small raised bed from its current location in front of the RCA buiding to the RCG site behind the ball diamond located on Child Avenue.  Keep your eyes out for that!

We look forward to seeing our final map design drawn by reGenerate Design Ltd on May 9th!!  Keep your eyes open for the formal unveiling (TBA).

This is our second last meeting before summer.  We have one more meeting scheduled for June 3rd, 2016.  If the weather is nice, we’ll meet outside the RCA building at the picnic tables.  Through July and August, we will call meetings if/when necessary.  Otherwise, we will do business via email.  Over the summer, ad hoc meetings will not be held on Fridays.
