The Altona Community Garden is voluntarily managed by members of the Altona Community Action Network (ACAN), a community organization that promotes eco-friendly practices that contribute to individual and societal well-being. In 2018, ACAN implemented several improvements including:
- a redesign featuring smaller more manageable plots;
- The Commons, an open area situated in the middle of the garden to give local gardeners a chance to get to know each other; and
- hands-on guidance on how to properly care and maintain plots.
The Town of Altona is grateful to ACAN and for the many donations from the community and local businesses, making 2018 an extremely successful year. So much so that additional plots are being planned for in 2019!
Applications for garden plots can be made beginning March 1st by contacting Jack Heppner at firstname.lastname@example.org or 204-304-0656.
