Seniors grow friendships and vegetables at Richmond Hill community garden
Richmond Hill Liberal
"Tomatoes, spinach, radishes and herbs flourish in the new community garden being tended by residents at a senior housing complex in Richmond Hill — but they are not the only crop being produced.
The gardeners here are also harvesting a crop of new friendships, good spirits and strong, flexible muscles and bones.
Launched this week, the Dunlop Community Garden is a new initiative of the York Region Healthy Aging Working Group, funded by Delmanor Elgin Mills, in partnership with the region’s public health, Housing York, Seeds for Change and York Region Food Network.”

Look how amazing our garden is growing! Once again, Hartman Public School in Aurora is doing an incredible job taking care of their fruit and vegetable plants. Our purple cauliflower is getting bigger, our broccoli is growing quickly and we have found our first green pepper.
We got an amazing donation from the York Region Food Network of peppers, tomatoes, eggplant and squash plants. We planted a few sweet peppers in te garden together today!
Thanks to all our incredible volunteers for maintaining the garden so beautifully. You’re doing a great job!
