Oliver Community Garden Society operates a public garden within walking distance of SOICS.  SOICS has rented a 4′ x 12′ box for the 2015 growing season.  Each box has timed irrigation and tools are available in the shed.  Benefits to clients include vocabulary, cultural norms around joining community groups, use of and respect for public spaces, teamwork, planning, volunteering, connections with other garden enthusiasts and, of course, enjoying the fruits of their labours.  LINC students have created journals to document the project.
