In an effort to prevent ‘entrenchment’ the City of Kelowna is restricting the growth of Tent City’s vegetable garden

The community garden, which is not sanctioned by the city, is situated on a plot of land along the fence that separates the encampment from the Rail Trail.

Helber said that in addition to food, the garden provides residents with pride and purpose because they have something beautiful and productive to work on.

He said that often, when pedestrians walk down the recreational Rail Trail pathway they “hurl insults” at Tent City and its residents. However, since the garden has been in bloom, Helber said pedestrians have been complimenting the plants and their growth.

In the past, Debbie and Garth (last names unknown), former residents of Tent City, spearheaded the gardens as a way to “beautify” the area. The couple has since moved on, leaving resident Adam Hillner, better known as A.J. to step up and take charge of the garden.

A.J., along with his Tent City neighbours have planted a variety of vegetables that have been donated by members of the community, including leafy greens, potatoes, peppers and tomatoes.
