The Garden Project
There is a newly reclaimed property next to the ACS back parking lot – 2408 Montvue Avenue. Maybe you’ve seen it already - a home to a group of raised garden beds waiting to burst forth with new life.
The Day 1 Urban Farm Community Garden project will be used as a teaching garden and working urban farm in the heart of downtown Abbotsford. It is quickly becoming a vibrant addition to the neighborhood. Plans for the site include:
- A site which will produce locally grown produce
- A place to host community events and workshops
- A space for people interested in learning about growing their own fresh food
Some of the current winter crops include cabbages, celery, garlic, spinach, mustard greens and celery root. The first fruit trees are in – although they need another season or two before enjoying the apples and plums.
Stay tuned for events, activities, and farm gate sales.
