Building the garden

Thank you to everyone who helped build the garden and donated plants! We built the garden during a lockdown period and had generous donations of zucchini, broccoli, peppers, tomatoes, cauliflower, cucumber, bee balm, blazing flower, sunflowers, and pollinator seed packs. A zucchini and tomato plant were also added to the garden by an anonymous donor – thank you!

Community Workshops

This August we are running a series of workshops with our community partners Bridges to Belonging, Extend-a-Family, Thresholds Homes and Supports, Focus for Ethnic Women, and Alzheimer Society of Waterloo Wellington. These artist led workshops explore nature, art, and food. Summer Art Campers have also been getting inspired by plants and nature.
