Thursday, March 23rd at 6:30pm the FGCA is hosting an Allotment Garden Open House in the Garry Oak Room. Over the past couple years we have had several interested community members reach out to us about creating an allotment garden for the Fairfield Gonzales community. We are excited to support a passionate group of community members on pursuing this project. This open house is an opportunity for us to assess the need in the community and for you to connect with others who share your passion. The City of Victoria’s Food Systems Coordinator will be present to answer questions and present next steps.
