Community garden

For 40 years La Pommerie has been offering horticultural lovers the opportunity to grow a vegetable garden. Besides the pleasure of gardening, you can savor the fruit of your work. Do you like organic food? It’s a good opportunity. The herbs you grow will change the taste of your dishes.

It is also the opportunity to make friends with whom to exchange…

What is a community garden?

A community garden is a plot of land divided into small gardens. Each garden is grown by an individual or a family. Water points, tools and relaxation areas are available for all members-gardeners.
But … only the one who cultivates can reap the fruit of his labor.

Rules

Return the tools back into the shed after use …
Put the rocks to the right of the shed. No rocks in the compost pile.
To the left of the shed, we find (see indications):
– the compost pile ready for use,
– the pile where to deposit leaves and shrubs (future compost),
– the pile that will be ready to use next year.
Do not pick your neighbors’s vegetables and plants.
Do not walk on your neighbors’ plot.

Where is located our community garden?

Activities

At the March 18, 2017 meeting of the members of the garden, Jasmine presented us the 2017 projects :

  • The setting of a garden suspended with herbs at the entrance of the community garden. These herbs will be accessible to all and will allow to discover the pleasures of gardening.
  • A picnic in the vegetable garden: initiation and tasting of shoots and germinations.
  • Later a “low ecological footprint” meal in September. This will be the opportunity to share the vegetables of our garden.
