In 2016, a local 4-H group started a Community Garden at the Westmount Community Center. They recently won a Sudbury Youth Civic Award for its creation and their commitment to volunteering and civic engagement. In 2017, John Leonard, shown in some of the pictures below with Angus Morris, bought a $100 community group garden bed in the name of Nickel Lodge as a 300 year Anniversary project. The growing has been a great success with harvest items like zucchini, radishes and lettuce all being donated to the Blue Door Soup kitchen. The harvest continues and we are hoping to get carrots, onions and turnips soon.
