Council approves a plot of land for Newcastle Community Garden
Newcastle will soon have a community garden. Council voted to establish a community garden on the open space located at 1780 Rudell Road, between the Diane Hamre Recreation Complex and St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Elementary School. The plot of land will accommodate approximately 70 individual garden beds. The Municipality will sign a memorandum of agreement with the local garden association, allowing those interested residents who do not have access to an outdoor space to grow vegetables and plant flowers.
The Newcastle Community Garden will join Clarington’s two existing gardens, the Bowmanville Garden Allotments located on Haines Street south of Highway 2, and the Liberty Allotment Gardens on Liberty Street south of Baseline Road in Bowmanville. More than 50 residents have expressed interest in establishing a garden in Newcastle.
