Calling all Market enthusiasts!

Our Farm Gate Sales are in full swing, and we could use a few more hands to help us out!  Do you love the Farm?  Love meeting your neighbours?  Good with cash?  Join us on Wednesdays and/or Saturdays to help us sell our delectable produce to community members.  If you're interested, reply to mary [at] ediblegardenproject [dot] com.  We hope you'll join us!


Wed. July 30, 5-6:30pm (Potluck 6:30-7pm)
Sat. August 9, 1-3pm

Come out to our next work bee and help us wrestle with the newest plant invasion (aka weeds).   Or join the compost social, with muscle-building and aromatherapy as added benefits!  

Our community potlucks are always lots of fun - meet your neighbours, share a meal and gardening tips. There is always lots to learn, and it's fun for the whole family! No need to have volunteered before the potluck - just come join us!
If you've never volunteered with us and have questions, check out the FAQs on our website
