HARBOUR GRACE, NL —A new community garden recently opened up for residents of Harbour Grace.

Shovels to be used by members of council and the community garden committee as the first plant bed is filled.

A grand opening for the garden, located just across the road from St. Francis and behind the old courthouse, was held Saturday morning, June 17th.

The grand opening saw a crowd of around 40 people attend, including members of council and the community garden committee, as well as MHA Pam Parsons and MP for Avalon Ken McDonald.
