Councillor Josh Matlow

Ward 22’s First Community Garden

In April 2012, I held a participatory budgeting meeting asking residents of the Brentwood Towers, Deer Park and Chaplin Estates how they would like to allocate developer funds to improve Oriole Park. The local community voted to direct these Section 37 funds toward a community garden. I am happy to report that my motion to deliver this funding was approved this year by Council. Construction of the garden began in April 2014, in time for the gardening season, and we celebrated the opening of the garden on May 24, 2014.
