Victoria Gardens is a new exciting urban growing/social space located on the edge of Balgay Park. We have exciting plans for the space including a community kitchen and picnic benches. We are looking for volunteers to help maintain the organic produce, support the development of our community kitchen by installing shelving, and to bring a sense of creativity in making the space a fun and enjoyable space for all.
