There are several different ways that you can get involved with the Guelph Street Community Garden:
garden with us
If you’re interested in having a plot at the Guelph Street Garden, email us at email@example.com. We always have a wait list, so the sooner you email, the sooner we’ll have a plot available for you, even if it’s not until next year! We have 24 plots in total, approximately 5-6 of which become available each year. Garden plots are only available to those who live in the Mt. Hope-Breithaupt Park Neighbourhood, so that we can continue to grow a healthy, local community! There is a priority list for those within approximately 500m of the garden, and a secondary list for those who are further away in the neighbourhood.
We are always happy to accept in-kind donations like tools, construction materials, or compost. In the past we have fundraised for larger projects, so if we have a project underway we will post it on the blog. If you are interested in donating, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are regularly in need of assistance with manual labour tasks such as weeding or upkeep of our fence or other structures. They’re not very glamorous jobs, but we would eagerly take volunteers in exchange for fresh produce later in the season! We are also looking for experienced gardeners who are willing to share their knowledge. If you would like to volunteer, email us at email@example.com.
hang out with us
Throughout the year, especially in the summer, we have lots of events at the Uniroyal-Goodrich park (pre- and post-pandemic). Even if you don’t have a plot, we’d love to see you there. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about these events, and visit midtownkw.ca for more neighbourhood events.
