Spring is finally here. It’s time to celebrate! This exciting, all-ages event, in partnership with the Orillia Youth Centre as part of Orillia National Youth Week, is one you won’t want to miss!
Wednesday May 6th 3-6 pm at High Street Park Community Garden (behind Brian Orser Arena)
- Planting of garden beds (seeds and tools provided, no experience necessary)
- Orientation for new gardeners (come prepared to get dirty)
- Food – zero waste potluck – bring a small, healthy contribution if you can (BYObowls/cutlery)
- At 5 pm, we’ll pause to hear from long-time community gardeners and local dignitaries as we kick off the new growing season
The weather forecast is looking amazing for our special event, 21 degrees and sunny, so lets all get out, make some new friends, and help grow our community! See you there!
