A community garden is growing in Baddeck…

Every now and again on my lunchtime walks I’ll saunter by the spot where the community garden is going in.

I like seeing the plan come to life.

County CAO Sandy Hudson tells me that there are around seven beds spoken for thus far, which means about eight remain. To rent one for the summer is only ten bucks, and you have to apply in writing to Mr. Hudson’s office. Complete details are in this earlier post about the garden.

I was originally thinking of getting one, because it is only ten bucks, and it would be cool to participate in this new garden in town, and show my support that way.

But, I can’t spread myself too thin, otherwise I get burnt out. Recently Elsie Larson and her sister Emma blogged about time management and reaching goals, and this part especially rang true to me:

“Say no sometimes, even if you really want to say yes. This might require you to grow a thicker skin or be ok with not getting to do a few fun things that you used to—but keep in mind that this small sacrifice will help you get to the things that are the most important to you.”

That said – I encourage those of you who do have the time, inclination, resources and desire to play around in a community garden bed, to do so. Or, at least, saunter by the new garden yourself, and check it out. It is here (more or less).

    I find it hard to believe they aren’t already all spoken for!

      I know!! But, that just goes to show you, something that you THINK will be super popular might not be, depending on the population of a given area, if they already have gardening space available to them, etc.

    That looks beautiful! I wish they had one in Sydney 😦 I have so much stuff and I’ve run out of space. I’d even buy one up there if I could convince my aunt to water it 😛 Are there rules about what you can and can’t plant etc.?
