The organization of the plots and the daily running of the space is overseen by Nasrin Khatam who keeps things running smoothly and also organizes parties, potlucks, and art programming for kids. “It’s enjoyable to have a big party to share. Even the seniors and little kids want to come. There are prizes. People are happy.” When garbage became an issue in the garden a few years back, Working Women Community Centre developed a Stewardship Project in which 10 seniors were trained as Stewards for the Oriole Community Garden and 13 youth were trained with the support of the Stewards to become “apprentices”.
