Painting the SEEDS in Nelson

A team of talented young artists from the Employment Edge program put their brushes to concrete road dividers

A team of talented young artists from the Employment Edge program put their brushes to concrete road dividers next to the SEEDS greenhouses at Lakeside Park.

Their design comes from a poppies painting by SEEDS artist Marilyn McCombe, who supervised the laneway project along with all the interested joggers, walkers, and seniors who passed by or who volunteer with SEEDS.

The artistic effort makes a statement that SEEDS is a seniors and youth community garden. SEEDS stands for Seniors Economic Environment Development Project which has elders utilizing the greenhouses at Lakeside Park to grow food.
