Sun City Community Garden celebrates anniversary with EPCOR

Ten years ago, on October 19, EPCOR granted the Sun City Garden Club permission to lease a plot of land at 91st Avenue and Greenway for the purpose of establishing a community garden. The Sun City Community Garden recently hosted a celebration of its ten-year partnership with EPCOR representatives and Sun City Recreation Centers representatives.

Shawn Bradford, Senior Vice President, Regulated US Water, EPCOR, and Paul Taylor, Operations Manager, EPCOR, attended the celebratory open house, commemorating 10 years of providing a place and opportunity for Sun members City Garden Club to grow vegetables. for themselves, the community and local food banks.

Community Garden Operations Manager John Dottavio conducted a tour of the garden areas for EPCOR representatives and provided information on recent updates that community garden members have made to the garden area. Of special mention was the recent completion of the pollinator garden area, which has been designated a “Certified Wildlife Habitat” by the National Wildlife Federation.

The idea for such a habitat was created by Community Garden members June Ball and Tee Nelson. To fund the development of the pollinator garden, it was decided that “memory bricks” would be sold; the bricks line the road throughout the garden.
