Just in time for summer!  In a continued effort to increase sustainability at Vancouver Island Technology Park, a community garden is being developed at the back of the Boiler House for employees.  Employees of the Park will have an opportunity to buy in to the garden for an annual fee.   We anticipate great interest in this initiative, and as a result, expect the 28 plots to be snapped up quickly. Plot ownership will be determined by those that sign up and deliver payment on a first come first serve basis.  If there are more than 28 people interested, a wait list will be created.  Once the success of the first year has been evaluated, additional plots may be added next Spring.  Details of the gardens are as follows:

Cost: $25 annual fee (cash only).  This cost will go towards the purchase of gardening supplies.  The Park will be donating most equipment, but minor supplies will be required. The garden will be watered once daily by the installed sprinkler system.

Plot size: 4’x8’

Maintenance requirement: Plots will be monitored for usage.  If it is determined that a plot is not being used or has been abandoned, the owner will be contacted, and the plot may be sold to another employee.
