Some techniques employed in the garden include vertical gardening, companion planting, square foot gardening and mulching. We also incorporate flowering plants to encourage and increase the pollinator population in the garden. We have partnered with the City Hall Childcare Society in the past, engaging children in garden care.

Anyone interested in this style of gardening are most welcome to join us. You do not need to be an experienced gardener to help out. We meet Sunday mornings, rain or shine (usually 10am-noon), during the gardening season. Please contact the email below if you are dropping by.
