Garrison Petawawa Community Gardens Open for Sign Up

Submitted by Environmental Services

Posted on Thursday, March 28, 2019


Residents of Garrison Petawawa Residential Housing Units (RHUs) are invited to reserve a plot or two in one of the community gardens offered by Garrison Petawawa Environmental Services. This year as a way of encouraging gardeners we are offering a free package of seeds upon signing up for a plot. Plots and surrounding space must be maintained and weeded by the individual signing up for the plot.

There two garden sites available on both the north and south side. They are located on Pegasus Ave and Wolfe Ave.

The Pegasus Garden will have 12 raised garden beds (4’ x 8’) and 9 full size plots (approximately 15’x 30’). The Wolfe Garden has 37 raised beds and 7 full sized plots available.

The gardens will be opening in May, which is weather dependent. Due to our climate is it optimal to plant on or after the May long-weekend.

Many of today’s communities are establishing gardens within their cities and towns in efforts to promote local produce growth, environmental awareness and community partnerships. The Garrison Petawawa Community Gardens have been created with the aim of achieving these same goals.

Interested residents of Garrison Petawawa can contact Nicole McGregor via e-mail at Nicole.mcgregor@forces.gc.ca for an application form.

Completed forms can be brought to the Garrison Environment Office in Building S-600 behind Building S-111 at 101 Menin Road.
