Land, ho!

At long last, we are thrilled to announce that the City has approved a site for the Cornell Community Garden: directly behind the Yee Hong Centre, at the corner of Almira and Murray Wilson. This piece of land is currently an underused grassy area, with a few small trees and a bench. The Yee Hong Center has generously offered to help us with water access and are excited to be involved with the garden; we hope that local homeowners will be equally enthusiastic. The next big step is an open-invitation community meeting, to seek input and approval of the garden plan. This meeting will be scheduled in November or December, so watch for details about that as well as when and how we will be signing up members. We plan to begin construction in April and start planting the May long weekend.
