The Peterborough Garden Show
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
