The hard work is over and the Havenwood Garden Tiki Bar is ready for the summer… and just in time for Canada Day.
Michele and Clara did all the painting, John built the base by crushing concrete blocks and Ian helped Rod to find and attach palettes together. The bar top is real Havenwood cedar and it is a Rod Bredin design.
Where did the Tiki Bar concept come from? Many have seen the Tiki Bar sign in Cindy’s plot and that is all it took. Cindy suggested it and Rod built it; an amazing example of community spirit.
More news to come soon.
Plan B involves an idea evoked from feedback on Pacific Landing’s idea of a plot adjacent to Phase Six. Plan B suggests that since Phase 4 will displace Havenwood Garden, that there is an opportunity to rebuild the garden nearby, by shifting it east.
What is seen here is phase 4 in orange, the current havenwood garden in green, plus a new garden in yellow. It is almost the same size. The bird sanctuary border is shown in blue and delineates the protected area which is roughly 100 meters from the lagoon edge.
From a garden point of view, it would have sufficient sun, a requirement for any community garden. Phase 4 residents would have easy access, plus if we look, the new garden can be expanded south as demand builds. It would certainly support the future of a community garden, a foundation of the concept of community building.
