Yes, Pear-y is back and we are gearing up for the Blue Nose, May 20-22, 2022! Our team of walkers and runners are limbering up and getting ready to raise $10,000 to support summer programming and make our Community Farm accessible to even more people!
The North Grove’s Community Farm is a vibrant 20,000 sq. ft. gathering space in the heart of Dartmouth North.
The Community Farm has something for everyone. By joining our Blue Nose team, you can help support vital summer programming and make our outdoor spaces accessible to even more people through programs like:
Sunshine Gang Day Camp
Family Playgroup and Baby & Me Playgroup
Community Garden Plots
Harvesting and preserving workshops using produce grown on our Community Farm
Intergenerational arts and crafts programs and more!
“We just love being there, we love the space. We can usually be found outside every day, checking on our garden plots, playing in the secret garden. We sometimes hang out there to play cards and play music. It feels like its own little community.” -Kirsten, David, & Jake
This year we’d like to make the Community Farm more accessible by:
Levelling the courtyard ground so mobilities devices can be used.
Creating wider paths and routes for ease of navigation.
Installing overhead solar lighting to provide community members with safe navigation of the space in the evenings.
Making raised u-pick garden beds at accessible heights to provide everyone with easy access to grow, tend and harvest fresh vegetables.
Adding more seating space for community members to find easy resting places and gather safely.
