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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We currently 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.
We need both in-kind and monetary donations to keep the garden going and to finish the rain collection structure. Some thing we are in need of include: garden tools, compost, and construction materials. If you are able to donate any of these things or money towards them, email us at email@example.com.
We are regularly in need of assistance with manual labour tasks, and 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
hang out with us
Throughout the year, especially in the summer, we have lots of events at the Uniroyal-Goodrich park. Even if you don’t have a plot, we’d love to see you there. Email email@example.com for more information about these events, and visit midtownkw.ca for more neighbourhood events.
