The Moore Street Food Garden is growing!
In 2017, Destination Church partnered with Southwestern Public Health to create a community food source for those who need it. The garden, located beside the BX Tower on Moore Street, provides fresh produce from its raised boxes to people in our community who might not otherwise have the means to access.
The garden is now growing to about 30 boxes. The brightly coloured boxes are used instead of more traditional gardens because of the contamination of the soil along the train tracks. It also serves as a way to preserve the heritage of the railway tracks from the BX Tower. This year, the garden will also gain a children’s area that will allow kids to learn about food growth and sustainability.
The Moore Street Food Garden is entirely non-profit and was established to help meet the needs in our community. You can learn more about this project at the Moore Street Garden Party this Saturday or by contacting Melissa at 519-301-3131.
What: BBQ, refreshments, and plants available for purchase. Funds raised will go to the garden boxes and top soil.
When: Saturday, May 11, 10am-2pm
Where: Moore Street Food Garden, behind Destination Church (668 Talbot Street, St. Thomas)
