Happy cultivating

Dear Editor,

"Fertilizer does no good in a heap, but a little spread around works miracles all over."

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Cheakamus Community Garden bloom on Saturday (May 25).

The volunteers have been working on this garden's vision for a year and it is wonderful to see it finally growing a membership base, as well as, what we've all been waiting for, food!

The garden gathering promoted interesting dialogue, brought our green community together and instilled the importance of cultivating our own food. Thank you to our local businesses who fertilized this event with generous contributions: Nesters Market, Purebread and Whistler Brewing Co.

Everyone is invited to come by and check out our Vegetable Empire down in Bayly Park.

A sincere and heartfelt thank you to Darel, Tess, Eric, Helena and Wendi whose commitment and enthusiasm has really made this project blossom and become a reality. The community garden's connection to building the neighbourhood's social fabric is truly as important as the food itself.
