Community Garden

Lake Trail Community School Garden

The Lake Trail Community School garden was originally created through a community volunteer effort over a decade ago and has since supported food for students and community organizations, as well as education and connections for both the school and the broader community.

The original garden was dismantled due to new school construction. We are excited to build our new garden as a vibrant school and community gathering space. We received a grant supporting infrastructure including a greenhouse and full irrigation. We have also received a second grant towards a waterproof shade sail structure, further extending the use of the garden for the school and the community into the shoulder seasons.

The new Community Garden and Outdoor Hub

The vision is to create a safe, outdoor space that is welcoming for the school community and broader community, and which supports a broad range of activities and events. We will continue to offer early years summer programming in the garden and are eager to hear ideas for other community uses of this new space.
