SPRINGHILL – It might not feel like it yet, but warmer days and spring weather are on the way and so will be gardening season.

Ecology Action Centre’s Su Morin was at the centre of a community information night on Springhill’s community garden and is accepting applications or inquiries from buddying gardeners looking to get involved.

The Ecology Action Centre, Springhill’s Leisure Services Dept., and The Cumberland Campus of the Nova Scotia Community College are renewing their partnership to encourage and promote gardening, offering a number of raised beds in the Lions Park.

“We have 15 plots, with the potential of adding up to 20,” Ecology Action Centre’s Su Morin said.

Thanks to a Thrive Funding program, the community garden was successfully introduced to Springhill and continued success s expected this year.

To introduce people to the project, an information night was held Thursday at the Dr. Carson and Marion Community Centre, that included face painting, seed samplers, planting and a worm-fertilizer demonstration.

Anyone interested in becoming part of the community garden project can contact Jo-Anne Potter at 902-597-3371, or email
