South 1st Garden – Janet Mitchell

After a yearlong process, which began with a petition signed by residents of the South First Street community and neighbors from the surrounding community, the CRHA signed a memorandum of understanding to work with residents to establish a garden in the South First Street community. The proposed 11,300 square foot garden space will include vegetable gardens, fruit trees and bushes, a rainwater collection system, and public gathering spaces. The focus will be on bringing people together across social boundaries to support and learn from one another, while working together to provide greater access to fresh healthy food.

Budget – $5000 (Rainwater system components, benches and shade structure, mural supplies, perennial plants)
