Richmond Hill residents are launching a new community garden called “Love, Life and Liberty” which is centered around cancer wellness. The 2,075-square-foot parcel, at the corner of 107th Avenue and 124th Street, is city owned and has been vacant for 25 years. Residents are taking over the space with plans to grow anti-cancer herbs, flowers and plants. They also hope to cultivate conversations about cancer wellness, and are designing a community mural with an female artist who has lost her father to cancer.
The group is currently working with GreenThumb and the Department of Citywide Administrative Services with a goal to launch with a fundraising garden party on March 8th, 2014. If you are interested in helping get this community space off the ground, sign up here.
