The Blue River Community Garden Committee and its members are proud to invite you to a grand opening event on Sunday, Aug. 9, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

After months of working on the project, the Blue River Community Garden Committee is proud to invite the general public, sponsors, and the local media to its grand opening.

The Blue River Community Garden aims to provide the population of Blue River with the opportunity to plant, grow, and harvest fresh produce locally.

Blue River Elementary School students are an integral part of the project.

They have two garden boxes of their own where they are learning the basics of growing vegetables.

This project has brought the community together towards an environmentally sound and sustainable project, which is ready to be shared with the general population and all stakeholders.

The day of celebration will include guided visits of the garden, activities for kids, food and beverages, music, and fresh produce on display harvested from the garden itself.

It is important to acknowledge the sponsors, without whom the project would not have been possible, and the main participants who helped build and make the garden a success story.

The Blue River Community Garden is located on the corner of Angus Horne St. and Harwood Drive (next to the community hall).
