Saanich 2014 in preview: Spring start for Gorge garden

Saanich’s first new community allotment garden is expected to break ground in Gorge Park in April.

Garden co-ordinator Gabe Epstein said public meetings will be held in January to firm up the design, and the Gorge Tillicum Community Association will have a better understanding how much it will need to fundraise for construction of beds.

“There will be ongoing conversations not only on early stages, but on final design,” he said. “Public consultation will include people who spoke against the garden ... we’ll get a better product in the end.”
