The Barriere Community Garden provides seniors, children and everyone in between the opportunity to grow their own plants and vegetables, get some exercise, obtain new gardening skills and enjoy others company while doing so.

The Community Garden is in DESPERATE need of an underground and automated sprinkler system. At the moment, watering the entire garden by hand is extremely time consuming and exhausting for the volunteers and puts the whole project at risk. As well, there is a need for a shade structure to provide relief from the sun and rain for the workshops put on by volunteers.

Community Benefit

The Barriere Community Garden provides the community of Barriere and surrounding areas with a place to come together to learn from one another, grow their own vegetables and plants, gain horticultural skills and socialize. Parents, Grandparents and even Teachers are able to inspire their children, grandchildren and students and introduce them to the joys and value of gardening. The children gain skills and an appreciation of food, plants and the earth all while providing an invaluable bonding opportunity.

How will the $5K be used?

Budget Notes: Budget does not cover the other materials needed for the shade structure. Volunteers will construct the shade structure.
$ 4,000 Purchase & installation of an automated underground sprinkler system
$ 1,000 Purchase of Metal Roofing
