MILKY WAY GARDEN
COMMUNITY VISIONING WORKSHOP

March 13th 2017, 6pm - 8pm

Parkdale Public Library

RSVP HERE


Join the conversation about the future of this Community Owned Urban Agriculture Space in Parkdale. 

Last summer the Parkdale community contributed $25,000 to help the Parkdale Neighbourhood Land Trust (PNLT) & Greenest City acquire the Milky Way Garden. We are now hosting a series of community consultations to collect input from local residents in order to redesign the Milky Way Garden into a shared urban agriculture space for Parkdale. Professional Landscape Architects and Designers will use that input to create a new Site Plan and Sustainable Business Plan for this space.

Visioning Workshop: 

Participants will be guided through a visioning process to capture needs, wants, and dreams, as they relate to the redesign on 87 Milky Way into a community space for urban agriculture.

Why/Background: 

The Milky Way Garden is a 7000 sq ft green space in Parkdale. The land has been stewarded by a local ESL class and GC for nearly a decade, but until recently this was a temporary agreement with the private owners of the land. The PNLT will soon purchase this land, to secure a dedicated urban agriculture space for Parkdale. This piece of community owned land will continue to be used for urban agriculture activities, but will be redesigned to reflect the needs and desires of local residents.

Who should attend:

Parkdale Residents, members of Greenest City and members of PNLT.
