St. Matt’s Community Garden Opens in the Sault

St. Matthew’s Anglican Church has recently broken ground on the St. Matt’s Community Garden in the Sault’s east end! At the rear of the St. Matthew’s property (1643 Wellington St. E.), garden plots (raised beds) are available for anyone in the community to rent for the season.

Ground was officially broken last Saturday where 16 raised beds were installed at the site. The garden is open for anyone with an interest in gardening, regardless of skill or ability.

The garden will be hosting a learning session with Suzanne Hanna from Allard Street Community Garden on Tuesday June 5th at 6 pm.  The first session will be on seed selection and will cover the basics on planting. A followup session will occur the following week (date TPD) on plant placement and transplanting (e.g. tomatoes and peppers).
