The Barnardo Community Garden

This garden, once a grass-covered traffic island, sits as a colourful gem in the north-end of Peterborough, bordered by Wolsley Street and Barnardo Ave, a busy intersection with lots of traffic. 

Begun many years ago by an avid gentleman gardener, Zoltan Bank, this former eyesore soon became a beautiful sight for those passing by on their way to work and school.  An ambitious project, it became too much and the time came when it needed more helpers and a new life. With the city's blessing and support, the next stage began.

Then, in 2009, a small team of volunteer gardeners from both the neighbourhood and elsewhere in the city started from scratch; new plan and new soil while saving many of the previous plants.

With a generous donation from the Peterborough Horticultural Society, new  plants were purchased and the work began.

In the past few years, the garden  has been  maintained by 4 volunteers who meet weekly to care for this jewel
