Belleville residents with a green thumb but no garden in the back yard, will have a chance to plant some seeds this season.
Last night City Council approved the development of a community garden pilot project at Ponton Park on Dundas St. W.
Chair of the city’s Green Task Force, Councillor Tom Lafferty, says a lot of people have expressed an interest in growing their own food.
A total of 20 garden beds will be developed and Councillor Lafferty says there’s so much interest that the lucky gardeners will be chosen by a lottery.
