LETTERS:Edible Gardens at Pickle ball site

Local activist encourages city to include gardens with pickle ball courts project.

An open letter to Penticton City Council

It just occurred to me that as the city is building the new pickle ball site, what a wonderful opportunity for you to put in some garden beds for edibles.

Incredible Edible Penticton as you know has maintained and grown at the Hastings Ave. location since last October. Our site is amazing! We are growing over 40 different kinds of herbs and vegetables, local neighbours and staff at the Village by the Station facility assist in maintenance, and share the produce grown. This is truly a community building activity.

With the pickle ball site close to Maggie and the Senior Centre, this would be an ideal location to set up inter-generational activities. Incredible Edible Penticton currently assists with edible gardens at three Penticton schools.

I would love to discuss the possibilities further with you.

I encourage you to create edible gardens at the pickle ball site.
