MOSS PARK COM­MU­NITY KITCHEN GAR­DEN Shuter and Jarvis Alex Wil­son Com­mu­nity Gar­den on Rich­mond West, named af­ter the late land­scape designer, com­mu­nity ac­tivist and writer, is per­haps best known. But Moss Park’s, opened in 2000, was key to trans­form­ing a bar­ren and trou­bled park into a nat­u­ral­ized oa­sis and gath­er­ing place. A sep­a­rate chil­dren’s gar­den and fruit trees have re­cently been added. Pro­vid­ing more than tasty veggies and fresh herbs for new im­mi­grants in nearby tow­ers and a learn­ing tool for un­der­priv­i­leged area youth, Moss Park’s gar­den­ing spot, which also fea­tures beau­ti­ful na­tive grasses and flow­ers, is cul­ti­vat­ing com­mu­nity spirit in a too-of­ten ne­glected cor­ner.
