Elaborate urban veggie garden feeds Sudbury group home
Bob Daigle's creative use of his city lot provides more produce than his residents can eat
For Bob Daigle, gardening is more than just a hobby.
Daigle runs a group home near Sudbury's downtown that provides disabled adults with care and somewhere to live.
His residents receive social assistance or disability benefits from the province, but Daigle says it's not much to live on.
Turning nearly every square inch of his tiny city lot into an urban vegetable garden helps him defray the cost of food in the summer months.
Daigle gave CBC Reporter Megan Thomas a tour of his elaborate vegetable garden, which includes a homemade water tower and roof-top planting boxes.
