Quiet little Crescent Park, at the corner of Oak and Sycamore Streets in Sarnia was brought to life on June 27, 2011 when more than 100 people gathered at a community barbecue to celebrate the launch of Lambton Circles Community Garden — finally!  The rainy days of May and June, had us wondering if the garden would ever get planted so the sight of green plants peeking out of the dirt was a relief to all. 

While everyone enjoyed eating hot dogs, playing in the park and visiting with each other, the most poignant moment of the evening came when Leaders, Allies, Guiding Coalition members and other invited guests gathered in a Circle around the garden to share "New & Goods" (something new and positive in your life.) As the evening wrapped up, with words of encouragement and support from Warden Steve Arnold, the Snowbirds, in perfect formation, streaked across the clear blue skies to the delight of all present!

The garden is the result of a partnership between the City of Sarnia, West Lambton Community Health Centre and Lambton Circles and is the first of its type in the County. It was planted and will be maintained by four Circle Families and Allies with support from the rest of the group for daily upkeep. All produce grown will be used by Circle members and others in the community.
