Gayle Rondeel plans to form a committee to begin the steps towards creating a community garden in Rimbey.

A gardening enthusiast is already envisioning a green and growing garden spot that will benefit the entire community, even though winter has not yet relinquished its icy grip.

Coun. Gayle Rondeel has a spot picked out at Eastview Crescent she says will be a perfect location for the garden.

“There is a huge green space there and it’s all open.”

Rondeel encourages all garden enthusiasts to come forward and sit on a committee to help get the garden off the ground.

“We need people from all walks of life. Whether they have had experience gardening or not doesn’t matter.”

She said a community garden can take many forms and can be made up of one large plot or a number of small plots tended by individual gardeners.

“It can be as diverse as the people want it to be,’ she said.

Rondeel believes a community garden is of benefit to the community, noting it brings people together, encourages creativity and satisfaction, as well as providing physical exercise and a chance to be out in the fresh air and sunshine.

“It is a very healthy thing and definitely brings people together.”
