The Sharing Garden, Nourishing Lives
Sharing is Caring
“Life thrives where care abounds… Our humanity comes alive in our commitment to one another and the planet. It is the sun, the life force of our humanity.”
–Vickie Cammack, social entrepreneur, Order of Canada
“What a concept – a garden that members of the community who actually need the food can access – so different from the community garden plots that serve individual families who often don’t actually need the produce.” -K.M.
“I am inspired by what I see here. Community, sharing, discussion, work, laughing, a feeling of togetherness. Growing food is bringing Newton together.” -R.K.
“Forget facebook and twitter, this sharing garden is community style social networking in action.” -A.N.
“This beautiful place refreshes the mind, soul and visual senses. Based on generosity, it is so valuable to this hurting neighbourhood, healing hearts and weary souls. Newton needs this place!” -B.
“I love this place. I go there frequently to enjoy the outdoor green space and enjoy meeting people there. It’s a great place to meet people from all walks of life. Coming together to sit and enjoy conversation or meals together has been the highlight of my summer. I have also enjoyed a few fresh organic vegetables throughout the summer.” -M.S
“This community garden is a blessing to us all, and I’m grateful to be part of it.” -E.W.
