The Community Gardens Need Your Help!

For the past seven years, the Yara Community Gardens have flourished in Moose Jaw. Home to over 125 individuals, families and clubs, our gardens provide space for people to grow local, pesticide-free produce. We host student volunteers, offer free environmental education for kids, provide space for new Canadians to grow culturally appropriate food, and daily celebrate Saskatchewan’s rich agricultural heritage with our seniors.

But this could all change this Monday February 11 2013 at City Council. Council will vote whether or not “the Home Street location [will] be made available for development,” or in other words – sold.

Will you help support the Community Gardens and their work on Home Street? You can write a letter of support, come to the City Council Meeting at 6:30pm (wearing green!) or contact your City Councillors. Let’s show our municipal government that Community Gardens are important to Moose Javians!

Contact Sarah Varey at Hunger in Moose Jaw for more information.
