Functions now open for brand new Guelph neighborhood gardens
Got a green thumb and want to get the neighbourhood in on it? The City of Guelph wants to hear from you.
On Monday (Sept. 26), the city announced it will be accepting applications for new community gardens for the 2023 growing season.
“In Guelph, volunteers manage community gardens where neighbours share the space, the work, and the rewards. It’s great for people who don’t have a suitable yard for growing fruit, vegetables, herbs or flowers,” the Sept. 26 release reads.
“Community gardens are great places to make new friends, or connect with neighbours, and welcome new people to our community. Getting out in the garden can improve our physical and mental health, and make nutritious food more accessible for everyone.”
Applications will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 31, and can be sent via email to [email protected], online at guelph.ca/communitygardens, or mailed to the city’s parks department at 1 Carden St.
For more information, email [email protected] or call 519-822-1260, ext. 3871.
