Open Garden Events

Welcome to our Summer Open Gardens

Each week from June 11th to August 8th we will host Open Garden events at rotating school garden locations on Tuesdays from 9am to 11am and at Kane Street Community Garden on Thursdays from 4 to 6 pm.

You can find the schedule of locations on the calendar below.  Please follow our social media for weather related updates throughout the summer.

These events are a time to stop into the garden to explore, harvest, learn and connect with nature.  You will have the opportunity to take part in a hands-on activity led by a GROW team member at each event.  Just like the gardens, the activity will change each week.

Open Gardens are FREE and open to all.  You can come late, leave early or stay the whole time. We just hope to see you in the gardens!
