Looking for passionate eco-warriors who are interested in working on a large backyard vegetable garden in Oakville. We will be growing fruit and vegetables of all varieties. You will maintain your own garden plot as well as helping to maintain the others.
This is a volunteer position suitable for horticulture or agriculture students and those that may simply wish to be connected to the earth over the summer months and want to keep their hands dirty. Ideal for anyone that is in the Burlington/Oakville area over the summer months or can readily get to it.
Compensation is in the form of fruits and vegetables that you grow and the sense of joy and community you will get from being a suburban homesteader.
Participation in this endeavour can begin at any point in the year as harvesting occurs in the autumn and research, education, discussion and planning of the garden can occur in the winter months.
Plants can be started from seed indoors in late winter and early spring.
If you are interested, please send a text to:
905-483-9299 (temporarly out of service since May 2019). Alternative number is 905-483-8564
