D.I.G.S. Douglas Island Gardening Society
manages the community garden on the island. The garden consists of eleven communal beds and ten allotment beds which are leased for private use each year. Please contact Norah Curtis for more information about the allotment beds –
DIGS work parties meet on Saturdays (in the winter) or Sundays (May to September) at 10:00 am and offer keen gardeners a chance to help in a variety
of garden chores. We stop occasionally for a cup of coffee and the opportunity to socialize. Fresh produce is put out on the harvest table at the road side and
islanders are welcome to help themselves (a small donation is appreciated).
Memberships are available (contact Jim or Margaret at
$10 single/$15 family.
Your DIGS membership card entitles you to discounts at most garden centres in town and helps fund the garden.
We also offer a gardening program for younger islanders – tots to teens. Starting in April and running until September, “Little Diggers” meet on Saturdays through April then Sundays – May to September from 10:30 am to 12:00. There is a $5.00 registration fee per child.
Each year DIGS hosts a variety of events to which everyone is invited.
Stop by and visit the community garden anytime. We look forward to seeing you.
