Sally’s Garden The Salvation Army 255 Gilmore Rd Fort Erie – Fort Erie Security Network Idea Girl Canada
the idea girl says
FSNFE meeting notes 11 Feb 2015. Anne was sharing that they only have 12 plots of land to use for Garden’s this year – this is OPEN to ANYONE in the Community.
It’s located on 255 Gilmore Rd in Fort Erie Ontario Canada.
You pay a $20 deposit for the garden. At the end of the growing season, after you clean it up and remove any plant debris (cleared for NEXT years gardeners) you would get your $20 deposit back. Please verify exactly how this works with Anne at the Salvation Army. (this is based on my notes from the meeting)
Just so you know we are working on a “gardener mentor” program and I’m doing my own thing trying to get some help and donations for the garden (seeds, plants are provided by Niagara Poverty Reduction. If you’d like TO ADD to this we can use donations of garden tools, sheeps manure (bagged) for 12 gardens.
We also need mulch and garden soil.
Contact Anne at the Salvation Army if you can help out.
Now there’s a 25 % tax credit for those of you that FARM. I am looking into expanding this tax credit with the government (sending them suggestions and stuff haven’t heard anything yet but I’ll keep working on it for you!) for business and corporate donations for our local community food bank, kitchen luncheons and now our community garden program.
Now were also going to suggest you plant a row give a row too for all gardeners out there.
Basically you pick up the FREE seeds and plant an extra ROW in YOUR own garden either at Sally’s Garden or in your own backyard here in the Niagara Region (anyone can participate) and you would DONATE those vegetables, fruits from that ROW to the local food banks and luncheon programs…
