TWU Impact is a Storytelling and Fundraising site for projects supporting the Trinity Western University community.
This year, I've been working with the TWU community garden project thanks to grants from the Canadian government and Vancity. It’s been a busy fall and winter at the community garden! Here a just a few of the amazing things we’ve gotten to do since receiving our Vancity grant…
September :– Open House –In September we hosted an open house information session for current gardeners and any potential gardeners interested in starting a plot with us. There was a great turnout, as people came throughout the afternoon to learn about our facilities, share delicious home-baked zucchini bread, and lend a hand picking tomatoes, squash and zucchini from the communal plots, a bounty that would be handed over to the Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope in Langley. A representative from Vancity came out to see the fruit (quite literally) of the grant, Melissa did a demonstration on how to sow fall cover crops that help suppress weeds. And everyone left with grocery bags full of produce!
