We will expand the Kitchen Garden developing additional grounds within the Centre for food growing. Now in our fifth year of growing fresh fruit and vegetables, we plan to plant more fruit bushes and build additional raised beds for growing vegetables. A steep bank adjacent to the Kitchen Garden will also be transformed into a wildflower meadow.
