UPCOMING WORKSHOPS – How to Start a Community Garden

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

Two sessions available. Choose either September 23 or October 14.

Suitable for new gardens, or existing gardens looking to onboard new volunteer coordinators.

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.



Thursday, September 23, 6:00–8:00 pm. CLICK THIS LINK to register.


Thursday, October 14th, 6:00-8:00 pm. CLICK THIS LINK to register.

Choose one from the two (identical) sessions.

We look forward to seeing you at this interactive workshop!
