Port Colborne’s Lockview Park has been long underused, but is on its way to benefiting the community.
Based on the success of Port Cares community garden, Sarah Lacharity of Raw Materials Company Inc. is proposing another community garden be made available at Lockview.
“Port Cares community garden has already shown a wealth of benefits that come from a garden,” she said. “Not only is the garden providing fresh, healthy food to our community, but it’s also a great educational implement as well.”
She told council during her presentation on Monday night that a second community garden will extend the reach within the community and give more residents the opportunity to have their own fresh food.
