Kitigànensag GSA Carleton Community Garden Update
The GSA executive has been meeting regularly with Dr. Wallace Clement, Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs, to reach an agreement on moving the garden to the new site. The new agreement will oversee the move from the original location to a new location behind the Nesbitt Building, including moving existing structures, the purchase of any new materials required, the cost of associated staff hours, and the installation of a new interpretive panel explaining the connection between the Algonquin people and the garden. The new garden will be larger than the original garden. The meetings have been productive, and we plan to have agreement finalized in April. It is expected that gardening can begin by the long weekend in May.
The Garden Coordinator has been finalizing plans for the garden, which align with goals of an organic, sustainable, permaculture garden. The new designs also have benefited from the experience of our first year of gardening. If you have any questions about the move to the new site, please contact email@example.com.
As the gardening season approaches, we would also like to announce the call for gardeners for the 2014 season. If you are interested in gardening and would like your name added to the list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
