It's time to get outside and cultivate that green thumb! We have a variety of events, reading lists, and CreativeBug crafts all designed to help you get more out of your garden.

Featured Events:

Join us as we showcase expert gardening tips and tricks! Together with Barrie Urban Pantry, our monthly Gardening Meetup is a great place to learn from the pros. Come prepared with some questions, and feel free to show off some of your gardening skills. Registration is required for this event. The next event is happening May 15 from 2:30-3:30pm. Register today!

You can also view our Seedy Saturday Gardening programs for tips on seeds, pollinators, and more tips from gardening experts.

Our Seed Library

“Borrow” seeds from our Seed Library! Community gardeners can borrow up to 3 packets of seeds, while supplies last. Fill out our Seed Library Request Form and be sure to include your top 5 picks from the list of seed options. We will provide you with 3 of your top 5 choices from our available supply.

We welcome seed donations throughout the year. Please place your extra seeds in an envelope with the seed type, date the seeds were harvested or purchased, and your contact information. Please sanitize your hands or wash them with soap and water before and after packing the seeds to keep our community safe.
