Gaetene is a resident of Dauphin, MB and has written a great piece that will be published in a number of local newspapers this week. She is looking in to the idea of starting a Fruit Share in Dauphin and the surrounding Parkland area. Way to go Gaetene!
Dauphin “Berry Patch” and Fruit Share Manitoba
A few times this past week, with anticipation and glee, I visited the “Berry Patch” garden in Dauphin. I took the opportunity to harvest a share of cherries, crab apples, delicious red currents and rhubarb. Still to come are the chokecherries, and already past their prime were the Saskatoon berries. Constructed and maintained by the “Dauphin in Bloom” program, this aptly named gem on the west side of the train station highlights some of the diverse, perennial food that grows in the region and offers it to be enjoyed by the residents and visitors of Dauphin alike.
