Grey Bruce Community Gardens Network

Our purpose is to CONNECT community gardens, local producers, food banks, and end-users to improve and increase food accessibility to fresh produce for the broader community in the Grey-Bruce region. In particular, we are witnessing how COVID-19 has imposed additional food security challenges and brought to greater public prominence, thus spurring the creation of this network.

Your Grey Bruce Community Gardens Network presents the following workshop online:

How to Create a Food Forest

Monday, March 1st 6:30 -7:30 PM
Join us by Zoom Call here.

Our Guest Speaker is Thomas Dean

Thomas is a graduate of Ryerson University in Engineering, and a graduate of the University of Guelph in Horticulture and Landscape Design. He has the Certificate of Merit in Healing Garden Design from the Chicago Botanic Garden, and is accredited in Evidence-Based Design from the Center for Health Design. Thomas’ focus is the design of Sacred, Healing and Community spaces. Recent and ongoing projects include the CMHA Food Forest at St. George’s Park, The Gitche Namewikwedong Reconciliation Garden, the Sculpture Garden at Grey Gallery and the Labyrinth at Christ Church Anglican in Meaford.

We hope to hear from you:

  • share resources and best practices
  • save time and energy
  • build resilient communities

Some future ideas:

  • create a local map of community gardens
  • exchanging seeds and creating a Seed Library
