BEST COMMUNITY GARDEN
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.
