Community Garden Signpost

We are please to announce the completion of our “Community Garden Signpost!”

The Signpost is part of the “I Have A Dream” art installation located in The Grove beside the Newton Recreation Centre, 13730 – 72nd Avenue.

The Signpost is made up of arrows that point towards 20 community gardens and related sites in Surrey, and a selection of 13 of the international gardens affiliated with the global  “I Have A Dream” project.
