Growing for Our Good
Sustainable Urban Gardening
Join your community in helping to grow organic food for local food banks and #GrownInMississauga!
The Growing for Our Good program will build your skills in organic and sustainable urban food production through hands-on education at the Iceland Teaching Garden. There will be space to learn, share knowledge, and have fun! Volunteers are welcome to attend one or multiple sessions. Each session will focus on different sustainable cultivation techniques, soil building strategies, and food system issues. Click here for a full list of weekly themes.
This program is FREE and open to all in our community. Refreshments will be provided. Adults, youth, children and families are welcome to attend. Participants aged 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. This is a great opportunity to complete high school volunteer hours! All participants must bring a signed and completed volunteer form to their first session.
Growing for Our Good sessions will be held every Tuesday from 4 PM to 7 PM from May 29, 2018 to October 9, 2018. Additional summer sessions will be held every Friday 8-11 AM from July 6, 2018 to August 31, 2018. Rain or shine, we hope to see you there!
