“Where you do not see the example, be the example; where you do not see hope, be the hope.”
Terry McEvoy (1958 – 2009)
The Giving Garden is a space for all members of the community. Originally an unused part of the Ferguson Forest Centre, the Garden is now a well-tended and growing part of the community. It is run entirely by volunteers, supported generously by the Ferguson Forest Centre staff, who assist seasonally with irrigation and cultivating.
Anyone may come, anytime, to plant, to nurture, to harvest – and with the harvest, to give. It is a place for you to take a break, to learn, and, in time, to fill a need: flowers for a friend, tomatoes for a shut-in, sweet corn for the charity barbecue...the plants which are grown here will be given, the time to care for them given, and, in time, the harvest will all be there for giving...by you.
Consider this an invitation to come and see the garden for yourself. It's on Highway 43, part of the Ferguson Forest Centre, off Anniversary Way. The Garden is a beautiful park-like setting, thanks to a most giving community, and with time, energy and the ongoing help of volunteers this welcoming spot will beckon visitors to return time and again. It is your Giving Garden, stop in anytime to plant a seed, pull a weed--or fill a need.
