Naramata Community Garden Society
The Naramata community garden is a co-operative venture between the community, School District 67 and the Naramata Elementary School. The Society was founded in response to the growing impetus of school curricula to introduce agricultural and environmental awareness to the classroom. The Society administers the site and with generous donations of time, labour and materials, a fenced area, raised beds, picnic tables and a garden shed arose in a barren space that had been a former graveled roadway.
Residents of Electoral Area E are invited to join the Society for a nominal fee and to work his/her own garden plot. Four beds are designated for use by the School. Unassigned plots will be utilized for the community garden space, and maintained by the Society, as a whole. There is a specially designated area in the Garden for a social and educational space where gardening skills can be shared.
The Naramata Community Garden 2012 executive: D. Evans, President; James Young, VP and Julie Young, returning as Secretary-Treasurer.
