A new pilot community garden will be constructed in Deer Valley, including a temporary parking lot and post and rail fence, installation of a water line, and tilling of the plots. Public engagement about the new garden occurred in 2019, and received extremely positive feedback, both from residents in the neighbourhood and city-wide. The pilot garden is expected to be open to the public for the 2022 season, and will be evaluated over three years.
