Green Thumbs Up 
B    B The better the community, the better the garden    
B    By Sandra Davis 
B    Reporter    
B    With the generous and hard work of Sheri Davis and the Squamish Rotary 
Club, Squamish is about to realize a decade plus long dream of having a 
community garden of its very own! By the end of May, Squamish will be putting its fi
rst roots down in our very own community garden with plots available for anyone 
who would like some extra room to grow their summer crops of flowers, salads 
and vegetables.The concept of a community garden comes from the idea of letting 
everyone, no matter what type of home they live in, have the opportunity to 
grow flowers and vegetables in their own garden plot, in a community setting 
where gardeners can benefit from working with each other.

The Squamish Community Garden is a joint venture between the Squamish Rotary, 
B.C. Hydro, and the Squamish Valley Golf and Country Club. These three 
generous donors have joined together forces to make real the dream of having garden 
space available to people who would not otherwise have access to a garden 
plot. The plot is situated on the west side of Hwy. 99 by Mamquam Road. 

For just $15 per year plus a refundable deposit of $ 20, you are entitled to 
a 4-by-25-foot plot (100 square feet) in which you may grow any vegetables and 
flowers you choose ( providing it is non-invasive and legal) in your plot. 
Soil and a low-tech hand watering system will be available this year for the 
garden, and as always with any project, the sky is the limit.

The Rotary Club will also be starting several very worthwhile projects in 
conjunction with the community garden. The Food Bank Grow A Row project will be 
highlighted amongst community gardeners as well as a seed collection project 
for Third World Countries who can really use for food the seeds we take for 

The Garden Centre across the road from the Community Garden will offer a 10 
per cent discount for members of the Community garden for all their gardening 

Almost half of the initial 28 spaces are spoken for, but space will be made 
as demand grows. If you are interested in a plot in the Community Garden, 
please call Sheri Davis at 604-892-1535 for more information or to book your space.

If you are a gardener, thank you- if youbre not and youbd like to be b this 
is your opportunity to be involved and learn from the best Squamish has to 

Good Gardening!
