Guelph Community Orchard Work Party

September 26, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm


ALL volunteers are invited to join us on Saturday, September 26 from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m. (for all or some of the time) for a work ‘party’ at the Harcourt Communal Garden and the Guelph Community Orchard.

We will be welcoming students from the University of Guelph’s Project Serve Program as well. There are many tasks to be performed in both locations – e.g. thinning out the ever-bearing strawberry plants in the orchard. If you volunteer, you’ll be on hand to take some of the leftover plants for your own garden! Straw will be placed under the remaining plants to help keep fruit off the ground next year. Some transplanting will happen in the vegetable and herb gardens, staking of asparagus and of course, plenty of weeding. Likely there will be some blackberries and plums to be picked and enjoyed!

Bring a spade, gloves, hat, water – whatever you need for comfort. Refreshments – coffee, tea, snacks will be available. For more information contact Jill Gill at
