The South Dryden Community Garden Project is a Rotary-led collaboration between the Rotary Club of Dryden and the City of Dryden.
The garden is located at the corner of Wabigoon Drive and Van Horne Avenue, the most densely populated area of Dryden, and will provide people in the area the opportunity to grow their own fresh produce and contribute to food security.
There were four work parties this fall to put up the fence and gates and to prepare the site for building the garden boxes next spring. Volunteer labour was provided by Dryden Rotarians, friends of Rotary, and the Dryden Kinsmen. Funding has been through the Dryden Rotary Charity Foundation and the City has provided the land and other infrastructure.
Special thanks to Shaun Kurz for designing the site and providing the Bobcat.
