You can also see it on the fence of the garden. We look forward to chatting with you about the upcoming block party and paint the pavement mural project.

HOW? Its through an amazing Soul of the City grant and the amazing work of our incredible charitable partners - the Lutheran Church of Our Saviour, located right in Acadia for 51 years, that make this event is happening. We are a very young organziation and could not do an event like this on our own. They are helping the Acadia Community Garden and Art Society grow!

WHY? Why are we doing this? So more people can learn about the Acadia Community Garden and Art Society and feel very welcome to get involved. Many hands makes light work of creating this beautiful outdoor community space. Its also about partnerships - getting to know our neighbours, neighbouring organizations and businesses, and making it possible to develop our green space further for all that come to Acadia.

EVENT AUGUST 9th 2014 11 am - 3:00 pm The event is August 9th and we need the help of amazing, fun volunteers to make the day a success - be the artist helper and help guide all the painters to their section of pavement to paint, or help set up tables, help hand out paper plates and napkins for the free M and M Meats Barbeque! Help monitor a bounce house or the old fashioned games. Its going to be fun. Want to enjoy the day too? No worries, pick up a shift and there will still be lots of time to eat and paint, play and visit your neighbours!
