The Agassiz Community Garden is welcoming a few new additions just in time for the growing season.

The volunteers behind the community garden expressed their thanks to the Agassiz Lions Club and to Powerwood for their roles in creating four accessible gardening boxes.

Specially designed for those living with mobility issues, the raised garden enclosures are easily accessible by wheelchair or walker. The raised walls and ledge offer a place for the gardener to sit and tend to their plants in comfort.

The local Lions Club donated $1,000 toward creating the new raised garden boxes while Powerwood donated the building materials.

Spaces at the Agassiz Community Garden fill up quickly, and there is a waitlist for standard garden plots. Those interested in planting at the garden should contact either Laurens van Vliet at 604-845-0252 or Don O’Neil 604-796-1222.
