A respite group with Kawartha Community care that meets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at Trinity used the church gardens this summer. They are fully handicapped accessible, and were a great source of enjoyment to the participants.
Water is supplied by the church but paid for by Community Care.
The gardens at Settlers’ Village are used by several individuals, each of whom has their own gardening style. There are rain barrels available for watering.
Everyone brings their own tools, watering cans, seeds, etc. The soil is topped up by Hugh Morshead from the Bobcaygeon Farmers Market.
Environmental Action Bobcaygeon and Kawartha Community Care hope to have one or two gardens available next year.
Anyone interested should phone Monica Berdin at 705-738-6218. You’ll be asked to sign a garden agreement, waiver, and guidelines to ensure commitment.
