Jeffery Bernard waters rows of broccoli in the garden next to the Lennox Island greenhouse.
The garden was there long before the greenhouse project was launched by the First Nation community in the winter of 2020.
Bernard has been working on the garden for about three years now — a job that teaches him a lot, not just about gardening but about many things in life, he said.
“My time here in the last three years, I’ve noticed I’ve grown with the vegetables.”
Bernard and other gardeners have been bringing that learning opportunity to other community members. And so, the Lennox Island Greenhouse and Gardens has become more than just a place where people can get fresh produce at affordable prices, but also a place for education, he said.
