Community Gardens Set to Open

Community Gardens Set to Open

Community gardens were included in Ontario's recent lifting of certain restrictions, much to the relief of local gardeners.

The community gardens will be allowed to open once the list of procedures set out by Algoma Public Health, have been put into place and they've been communicated to everyone involved.

Gardeners and volunteers must adhere to new restrictions and follow the guidelines that include: no sharing of tools, wearing gloves at all times and washing gloves after each visit, and frequent sanitizing of garden equipment such as gates and hoses.

There are to be no group programs, or group projects, and physical distancing is to be practiced at all times. 

Here is the full list of the guidelines and best practices set out by Algoma Public Health. COVID-19_Quick-Reference-Guide-for-Community-Gardens.pdf

Watch for notification from your local community garden, as they prepare to open.
