Long Description:
From a flyer posted on loaction:
Project Community Garden (PCG) began in 2014 as a student run program working in partnership with Syndenham Street United Church. PCG is completely volunteer run.

In 2017, a small group was formed with church members taking on a more active role in the production and upkeep of the garden.

The purpose of the garden is to create a biologically productive and educational space in which members of the Kingston community can learn about and engage in urban agriculture. In doing so, we seek to lessen the disconnect between us and our food and promote concepts of food sovereignty.

The Garden's harvest is donated through the Loving Spoonful's "Grow a Row" program, which helps provide healthy meals to individuals and families who might not have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. We contributed approximately 170 pounds of produce over the 2017 growing season - 70 pounds over our target. We hope 2018 will be just as successful!

The garden has proved to be a very rewarding initiative both for the community and for the people tending it, with the work being more therapeutic than arduous.
