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 (CGDF). The CGDF applicant must have attended a workshop in the past 3 years, as criteria and processes have changed throughout the years, and we encourage more than one to attend at a time.

To register please contact – a confirmation email will be sent upon registration.

Please note: This workshop is being delivered in English. Should you wish to be added to a list to be informed when a French session is scheduled, please contact
