New McDonald Park Community Garden

Kamloops, B.C. - The City of Kamloops in partnership with Interior Community Services is proud to announce the brand new Kamloops Showcase Community Garden at McDonald Park. Kamloops Community Gardens are fenced subdivisions of land sectioned into individualized plots enabling people to grow and eat healthy, nutritious foods at a low cost. Plots are available for residents to grow their own vegetables and socialize with other gardeners. Water is supplied; gardeners only need to supply their own equipment and seeds.

For more information or to register your own plot please contact Interior Community Services at 250-554-3132.
