Shubie Community Garden

$1,525 of $2,700 goal

Raised by 21 people in 5 months
Hey there! We're the owners of Lemon Dogs, and we run the Lockside Canteen in Shubie Park. We love the park dearly, and we're always looking for ways to make it more community oriented and beautiful. We partnered with the Shubenacadie Canal Commission to come up with a plan to build a community garden that surrounds the patio, to make the space a more comfortable and inviting place in which to spend your summer afternoons. We need some assistance getting the last of our funds to move forward, so check out the rewards on the side to help us make this build a reality!

With plans for 10 custom raised garden beds, wooden stairs to the open field beside us, built in benches and permanent shading with string lighting for evening events, we hope to build an engaging and comfortable space to hang out, enjoy a picnic and grow your own veggies!

The garden plots will be for community use, and the new space will also be utilized for outdoor workshops with guest speakers on topics like gardening, farming, flower growing + arranging and mushroom cultivation.

We want to foster a location for learning and community engagement, but we need a bit more help to reach our target. With a huge thanks to local government and the Canal Commission, we've already raised over 60% of the funds necessary to proceed with this project, but we need your help with the rest to be able to finish the project. Anything helps!

The build will be starting soon, with work projected to be completed by mid May. Please share this around! The sooner we reach our target, the sooner the build will be finished and everyone will be able to enjoy the new space!

Hey everyone! Here's the shack as it looks now. The projected garden plots would be flush with the patio, dug into the hillside. Gardeners would be able to comfortably stand next to the plots on the outer edges and enter the patio through the new set of stairs, or walk around the plots to the existing pathway.
