Fraser Valley Regional District Compost Demonstration Garden
Built in partnership with the Fraser Valley Regional District, the Compost Demonstration Garden is located next to the Recycling Education Centre at the Abbotsford depot.
Information about composting, water wise gardening, and grass cycling is available at the garden. The compost garden contains beds demonstrating different types of gardening. There are no use of pesticides or herbicides and all gardening is done organically. The containers and structures in the garden are made from either reused or recycled materials.
There are 6 operational composters located in the garden. There are also several display bins from different manufacturers. Many of the beds contain edibles including herbs, berries, and vegetables.
Many of the events that take place at the Abbotsford Community Services Recycling Program are held in the compost garden. It has been the site for composting classes and the Education Program’s activities which include summer camps and re-use craft classes.
