Feb 15 | WORKSHOP How to Start a Community Garden

Join us on Feb 15 and learn about the steps involved in starting a community garden. How to search for land, what is essential when starting a community garden, the supports available, tips for organizing and much more!

The attendance of at least one garden coordinator (or a member of the garden who is working on the proposal) at a How to Start a Community Garden workshop is a requirement in order to apply for funding through the Community Garden Development Fund. The coordinator must have attended a workshop in one of the past 3 years as criteria and processes have changed throughout the years, and we encourage more than one to attend at a time. 

WHEN: Saturday, February 15 from 1:30pm – 3:30pm
WHERE: Hintonburg Community Centre, 1064 Wellington St
RSVP: Please RSVP to communitygardening@justfood.ca, and let us know if there’s something specific you would like covered!
