Wheelbarrow and Hand Tools – The Irwin Street Garden is looking for some hand tools and a wheelbarrow for volunteers to use during work parties. If you think you have something to donate that will be useful, please contact Nanaimo Community Gardens at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-816-4769 to donate.
2015 is the last year we will be operating in our present greenhouse, but we are working hard and negotiating with local authorities to set up another site so we can continue to offer seedlings to the community in 2016.
