Who can rent a garden plot?
The Gateway Community Gardens are established to be a blessing to our community. So who can rent? Those living within the community of Abbotsford. We will have 7 of the 24 garden plots for members of Gateway Community Church and the remaining plots will be for those living in the area having a desire to garden.
Will tools be provided?
Tools will not be provided immediately but over time we hope to provide a shed and tools. As we begin, each gardener will need to bring their own tools. For the larger community volunteer garden days, tools such as wheelbarrows etc. will be provided.
What about animals?
As much as we love animals, we do not love them eating our produce. So we plan to build a 6 foot high wire fence around the perimeter of the gardens. Will this be 100% effective in keeping out animals? No, but it will help.
What about safety?
As mentioned, we will have a 6 foot fence around the perimeter of the garden and the gate will be locked with a key-pad lock. Only those with the lock code will have access to the gardens.
Will water be provided?
Yes, we will have a garden hose available for proper watering of your garden
