Oppenheimer Park Community Garden
A small community garden was created in the north eastern corner of Oppenheimer Park and will be overseen by local organizations.
Benefits of Community Gardens
Community gardens bring economic, health, environmental, and educational benefits to communities. They can also highlight cultural identities in a neighbourhood.
Community workshops gathered input on the design and use of the gardens.
A garden to call our own
The Oppenheimer Park Community Garden increases community involvement in the local food system and cultural traditions, and improves community capacity to deal with food security.
Oppenheimer neighbours can meet, celebrate, build community, and grow their own medicinal and cultural plantings.
The garden area will feature a “medicine wheel”. Plants are being carefully selected with community involvement.
