  • New Community Garden a Team Effort – Stadium Affordable Storage Centre at 8618 106A Avenue led the creation of a new, thriving community garden this past summer. The owners did a door-to-door flyer to all the surrounding apartments and within three days had a dozen names of volunteers. Maintenance person Fred Saint built the raised beds at the office in the dock area. The volunteer team helped get the beds filled with soil and planted. Next season, the company is looking to double the current size, and to add a fence, signage, and a walk system between the plots. This is a group photo of the volunteers. Fab Colli
