Camp Chief Hector YMCA – Community garden

On such a cold day (-34C), brrrr, here’s a story to warm you up.

Summer 2011 saw the creation of a community garden at Camp Chief Hector YMCA. We have recently added a greenhouse.

Last summer, with the help of campers and counsellors, we grew tomatoes, peas, beans, lettuce, carrots, radishes, herbs and kale.

We built a herb spiral in 2011 to add to the 12 planting plots and the 2012 addition is a small greenhouse for seedlings.
