City looking at sites for community garden

The City of Langley will consult with the public about four possible locations for a new community garden, and hopes to partner with local community groups willing to take on the commitment of day-to-day operations for the project.

City Council received a report during their regular July 21 meeting from the Parks and Environment Advisory Committee, recommending that they consider Michaud Park, Douglas Park, Linwood Park and Dumais Park as possible spots for a new community garden.

The report also recommends that a public consultation meeting take place to asses interest in the proposed locations from local residents, and that community groups or area residents be approached to create a group that will organize, maintain and take care of day-to-day operations for the garden.
