  • Bloomfield's community greenhouse.

After two years of planning and waiting, this north end community greenhouse is finally beginning to blossom. Saturday afternoon marks the launch of the joint project between Imagine Bloomfield and its friendly neighbours the Ecology Action Centre that'll open up the floodgates for urban gardening aplenty in a very active neck of the woods. Thanks to the big brains, and most importantly, the patience of both the EAC's Garity Chapman and Bloomfield's Susanna Fuller, the project is ready to roll with big plans ahead including playing a part in a native plant project (part of the EAC's Urban Garden Project) that'll see 200 native plants be planted in HRM's community gardens. "The Greenhouse is a great addition to the Bloomfield Community Garden and is also part of what we hope will continue to happen at the Bloomfield Centre as the redevelopment starts to take shape," says Fuller who hints at an urban food centre, community kitchen and maybe even beehives in the future. Blooming brilliant.

Saturday October 15, Bloomfield Centre, 2786 Agricola Street, 2-5pm (ribbon cutting at 3pm)
