The Meaford Community Gardens group encourages the creation of an abundance of quality, locally-grown food, produced in an ecologically-sound manner, for all of Meafords’ community members! These sites yield fresh, organic produce for the community every year, and engage community members of all ages in learning how to use environmentally-friendly methods to grow fresh, local produce year-round.
There is currently 4 community gardens located in the town of Meaford at Georgian Bay Secondary School, Victoria Village, St. Vincent Euphrasia School and the Church of the Nazarene.
Running Thursdays, 5-7pm, from the end of June until Thanksgiving, members of Meaford Community Gardens run a Meaford Community Gardens Market. You can find fresh produce from the GBSS Community Garden, fresh fruit and preserves by the Community Gleaning group at the market. All goods are sold on a pay-what-you can-basis. (Picture Attached).
For more information about the community gardens, contact Simona Freiberg (firstname.lastname@example.org).
GBCS Community Garden
In the summer of 2011, Meaford’s first community garden was created at Georgian Bay Secondary School (GBSS). The status of this garden is in question as it sits on the now-vacant Georgian Bay Community School location.
Village Green Community Garden
In the Spring of 2013, The Village Green Community Garden was established at Victoria Village. The private citizen plots at the garden are tended to by residents of Victoria Village. There are also communal plots throughout the garden and the produce from these plots is distributed amongst those who tend to the garden as well as to other residents of Victoria Village.
