Community Garden and Greenhouse Program
We developed our community garden and greenhouse in 2010. With the assistance of grants in the early years the gardens flourished, but in later years the gardens were not used to their full potential. In 2018, we formed a partnership with Gros Morne Farm and Market. They are working towards the establishment of a local farm and market to provide the community with access to fresh, local sustainably produced vegetables. We are allowing them to use our gardens and greenhouse at the Old Cottage Hospital until their own premises are ready.
Our Community Kitchen program operates out of the original kitchen in the former Bonne Bay Cottage Hospital. With the assistance of a variety of grants, we focus on preparing and serving affordable, nutritious, delicious food to residents of Norris Point and surrounding communities. We serve community lunches, we offer catering services for local events, and we offer “plant-based” cooking classes.
In response to the Covid-19 crisis, we offered a free “Healthy Meals on Wheels” program. This program enabled us to deliver safe, healthy food to people who were socially isolating in their homes, especially those who are vulnerable, such as seniors. We included recipes for the meals as a way to educate and encourage people to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diet.
The Community Kitchen is temporarily closed as we await further grant funding.
Our studio space is now available to host conferences, meetings, club gatherings, classes, or events for your party’s needs. We thoroughly disinfect the space, including the tables and chairs, before and after each use to assure your safety.
Please call 709 458-8032 for booking information.
The Cottage Hospital Museum is located in our former men’s ward in the main floor. Come see how the hospital looked and operated around the early years of its life (1940–1950s), and follow the story of how our hospital grew into the vibrant community center it is today!
Please call 709 458-8032 to book a guided tour.

The public library is on the lower floor of our building. The library hosts a large selection of books and DVD’s, with a CAP site to provide internet access to the community. For the safety of the public during the pandemic, please call the library in advance to rent books or DVDs.
