The Tahsis Community Garden is a peaceful green gem located at the end of the Riverside Trailer Park. Surrounded by deer fence, it offers raised bed garden plots, elevated ‘tabletop’ gardens, a large greenhouse, and is the site of the Tahsis Farm to School garden. The Tahsis Community Garden Society supports Tahsis Days with an annual donation to the Silent Auction as well as presenting the ever-popular Slugfest. Based on the success of last year’s Summer Solstice Potluck, there are plans to make this an annual event. Garden volunteers always man a table at the PAC Bazaars – we’ll be at the Spring Bazaar on May 5th.
Gardening has great health benefits including increased exposure to Vitamin D, lowered stress hormone levels, increased physical strength and flexibility, the positive psychological effects of being in nature, and gardeners choose what to grow and harvest their produce at its nutritional peak.
The annual membership fees are $20 for a raised bed, $10 for a tabletop, and greenhouse plots are $10 as an add-on, or $15 as a stand-alone. Shelving in the greenhouse is free to members for starting their veggies or flowers.
Currently, we have 4 raised beds and 8 tabletop beds available for the 2018 gardening season.
Membership involves a commitment to participate in the overall maintenance of the garden by helping out at the Spring and Fall work parties and taking on a general chore for the season.
No one is asked to contribute beyond their physical abilities; any undertaking large or small, supports the whole.
The community garden is a registered non-profit society.
