Pollination Garden helps Transform Empty Lot

St. Andrew's Memorial Church grows vegetables for the Fellowship Centre and the Daily Bread Food Program in London Ontario. Nancy Warwick writes that "Over the last three years, (St. Andrew's Memorial Church in London Ontario) built and leased out 14 raised garden plots of various sizes for use by families in the Old South neighbourhood". In 2013 the parish donated more than 300 pounds of produce and expects to give 250 pounds this year.

In 2014 the parish added a pollination garden. Ms Warwick states that "The plants in this garden are labelled and a document is available in the church so that people can do a self-directed tour to see what type of plants attract bees. It is a very pretty sight as you drive or walk along Foxbar Street and a very useful alternative to what was once a vacant empty lot." St. Andrew's is helping to beautify parts of city of London.
