Avoniel Community Garden Container Arrives

The Avoniel Community Garden took a step forward yesterday with the arrival of the container! This container will be used as a classroom and training space for both adults and children.

The Avoniel Community Garden will be the first of many along the greenway route and we hope that it will become an attraction as well as an important, integral part of the community here. Check out the arrival of the container in the CCG gallery.
