|Description & Services|
|Information||The BCGN offers all citizens in Bridgewater the potential to grow their own healthy food within their neighbourhoods, thus increasing food security, self-reliance and sustainability.
Through shared experiences involving gardening, food and celebration, Bridgewater’s social capital is increased. The individual, intergenerational and intra-community relationships are nurtured through these activities. The BCGN provides ways for the community to get hands-on education and experiences in gardening, food production, and related activities and achieves these outcomes by working according to its Core Values and the goals and principles of the Integrated Community Sustainability Plan.
We have our beloved first project, the Hodge Podge Community Garden, at the corner of Elm & Aberdeen in the Aberdeen Green Park. New gardeners always welcome.
Interested in being involved? Please be in touch!
Next, we have our Incredible Edible Bridgewater (IEB) group supported beds. This will be the 4th year for this initiative. You will notice these gardens in front of Churches, businesses, the hospital, Girl Guides, the Library, the Marina, MODL, the Dawson Centre and at several apartment buildings. We are seeking others to create a garden at their place of work, group or office. Please connect with us to learn more.
