The Bowmanville garden has a long history, as it was the first community garden developed in the Bowmanville community. Residents scouted the neighborhood for suitable locations for community gardening and identified the space along Bowmanville Avenue along the cemetery wall as an ideal locale. Thus began Bowmanville’s commitment to creating an urban landscape with lush public gardens to complement the lovely private gardens that have long been a prized feature of this community.
The Bowmanville Garden includes lush landscape, several resting spots, and an area of community vegetable plots at the east end. A path connects the vegetable gardens on the east end to the BCO GreenSpace at the west end of the cemetery wall. Neighbors can apply for vegetable plots in the Bowmanville or Gateway garden veggie beds on an annual basis.
