Community garden

Resident provides some details on the West Vernon community garden

Well, tomorrow it’s my shift to fill the rain barrels seeing that the rain man hasn’t been around too much.

You see, there are 50 gardens at the West Vernon community garden, which have had no water for a couple weeks now. These gardens are mainly rented by seniors and even with the barrels, it’s not easy for them to carry the buckets, so some have given up or are just waiting patiently for some miracle to happen. There are rumours of why the water line is broke or cut off but I won’t get into that. These seniors not only grow crops for food, but also for socializing with  gardeners.
