If you’ve peered through the fence at the aftermath of the flooding, you know that our beautiful community garden is almost unrecognizable. Many frames and structures were washed out of place; some were tossed about and upended. It’s been astonishing to say the least.

The garden is still closed and everyone must stay off the property until further notice. Once the City of Abbotsford has finished its risk assessments, the hard work of restoring the site will begin. On February 23, 2022, the ACG board will hold an exploratory video-conference with garden members to address questions and to begin planning for the future.

With a telephoto lens, our photographer was able to take pictures of the current state of the garden. These will give some idea of the scope of the cleanup that is ahead of us and may help with the planning.
