Yesterday's Garden

Two years ago this area was more of a landfill than anything else.  But with a lot of hard work from volunteers, staff on work training programs, and the kind donations of materials and services from local businesses, we have a garden growing in the middle of our city.

This PDF is CRC's Demonstration garden plan for the years  2010-2012 . The file is large, so it will take a minute or two to download .  Not recommended for dial up connections

Today's Garden

 Today's garden is a thriving accessible garden for our partners and the community. The Community Resource Centre staff and volunteers plant and maintain the garden. We use the produce in the Harmony Cafe every day during the growing season and process some for winter use. Part of the garden is used by Powell River Family Place for parent/child gardening activities. And we are building a Composting demonstration centre.

This PDF is CRC's Monthly calendar for activities in the kitchen -- what to harvest, and in the garden -- what to plant.  If you look at in  a two page side by side view, you will get the effect intended.

Tomorrow's Garden 

Each year our garden gets stronger.  Last year we added a small irrigation network to make it easier to water the plants. This year through to next spring we are adding new beds,  raising our existing beds to accommodate new compost and more soil.  We will also be building a greenhouse to extend our seasonal crops.  And  we will be growing our food year round. We have a bear-proof composter, a regular black plastic "domestic" composter and  several open systems. We also have a worm composting bin.

If you would like to volunteer in our garden, please give us a call at (604) 485-0992 or come in and see us and we can discuss your involvement.  If you have any questions or suggestions about this section of  our website, please send an email to
