THE SALVATION ARMY CENTRE OF HOPE COMMUNITY GARDENS

LOCATION
London, Ontario

CLIENT
The Salvation Army

 

A small, neglected parcel of land was rescued and repurposed to become a community garden to provide urban agricultural programmes and pollinator gardens for The Salvation Army Centre of Hope. The gardens’ framework is organized by galvanized planters for vegetable gardens, a fruiting serviceberry tree-line and boulders for seating. Floriferous pollinator gardens define the street frontage and envelop the existing metal fence to visually link the private and public spaces with an articulated arrival forecourt furnishing a welcome mat through the existing gates and into the lush gardens for all to experience and enjoy.
