Big thanks to everyone that attended the official launch party of the Common Ground Community Garden. In attendance and making speeches were representatives from all the groups that made the garden possible. We heard from Encana, who were very generous with a donation that allowed the garden to be built, from the city who donate the soil and mulch for the garden, the Library Foundation who arranged all of the foundation and from Lorisa who spoke for the Garden Society and all the gardeners.
The library arranged games and events for all of the children in attendance and they were very entertained with rock and water jug painting, pinatas, and jelly bean races. Sarah entertained with her guitar during story time in the reading area and snacks and refreshments were enjoyed by all. Below are some pictures. If you would like to have your pictures from the event included, please send them in.
