Learning Garden Completed At Interfaith Food Bank

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The Interfaith Food Bank celebrated the completion of their new Learning Garden on Thursday.

 

It's an opportunity to teach people how to grow their own food. Executive Director Danielle McIntyre says "mostly we're trying to teach the very basics about soil quality, things that plants need, water, sunlight, etc, and that people don't have to have fancy gardens to grow their food in. You can grow in buckets, you can grow in an old dresser if you wanted to, the basic concept of providing for your own food is rather simple if people get a little bit creative."

 

All of the produce that's generated will be used in their cooking classes and anything that is surplus will go out to food bank families.

 

The garden is located on the west side of their new facility on 3rd Avenue North. It offers an outdoor gathering area, raised beds, a greenhouse, and a rain water collection, storage and distribution system.
