Our Green Space

The landscape of Beaver Creek Housing Cooperative (BCHC) is very pleasing to the eye — that is, once you get used to a less manicured and more nature-friendly aesthetic.

Our lawns and gardens are designed to play host to the indigenous plants and wildlife of Southern Ontario. As such, we work to maintain an environmentally friendly and sustainable eco-system, free from pesticides, and welcoming to our furry and fluffy friends.

Common Areas

We all share certain buildings and facilities.

  • community centre for co-op social events, committee meetings, and for booking by individual members for private events
  • Lending Library
  • Mother Hubbard's Cupboard
  • sports pad
  • playground and swing set
  • organic garden plots
  • orchard
  • picnic tables
  • gazebo
  • vibrant naturalized green space
  • three outdoor garden sheds housing our fleet of lawn mowers in addition to our garden tools, snowblower and shovels

Maintaining Our Shared Resources

Our outdoor environment is managed by the Landscape Committee and supported by resource people.

Each member contributes during our community Work Days, which are held twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall.  Members also participate in the Winter Exercise Program by removing snow from designated areas.

Volunteers help clean our community centre, and maintain our lending library and Mother Hubbard's Cupboard.
