crocusSpring – even though it may not feel like it today it is the time of year that we turn our attention to the gardens.

With the stay at home order we are not able to get into our own plots at Maple Gardens however the community gardens don’t usually open up until May anyway.

Right now though there is a way you can help us out. We have seedlings that are in need of foster care and are looking for volunteers to care for them. Please contact Sam (our Food Bank Garden coordinator) at if you would be able to help her out with this and/or over the spring and summer.

We can see one of our plots already growing a nice crop of garlic, thanks to Lisa who had planned it all out last season for us.

If you are in need or know of someone who could use our help PLEASE have them email us at or call 905-637-2273 to make arrangements to have food dropped at their door or make arrangements to pick it up through our curb-side pickup option. If you are a resident in Burlington, we are all here to help. Don’t struggle – give us a call.
