Iceland Teaching Garden Volunteers

Join us at the Iceland Teaching Garden for drop-in volunteer sessions to help steward our urban garden space!

This program runs from May-October (first session May 7), where we grow food for local food banks, and each session includes seasonal garden tasks like seeding, transplanting, harvesting, watering, moving compost, and more. Learn about growing food in urban areas – no experience necessary!

See below for the times available; registration is needed prior to each volunteer session. There will be rolling availability and registration will open two weeks prior to each timeslot. You are welcome to join as a volunteer at any point in the season; feel free to come to as few or many sessions as you’d like!

Spring
May-June; Tuesdays, 4pm-6:30pm

Summer
July-August; Tuesdays, 8am-11am

Fall
September – October; Tuesdays, 4:30pm-6:30pm

The Iceland Teaching Garden is located behind the Iceland Arena at 705 Matheson Boulevard, Mississauga. Click here for Google maps location.

If driving, park behind the arena by the playground and soccer fields. Follow path over bridge and turn left to get to garden.

For other modes of transit, Jan’s Trail can be reached by accessing behind the Iceland arena, as well as two other trail access points on Wilderness Trail and Driftcurrent Dr. There are bus stops at Kennedy Rd at Wilderness Trail and Bristol Rd at Kennedy Rd that may be a quicker access point than going around to the arena.
