This will be our 4th growing season.
Once we can find the gardens after the winter we have had
we hope to expand with fruit bearing trees and shrubs.
Many volunteers will be required to make this happen.
If you would like to join our team please let us know.

WE WANT YOU
Newtonbrook Neighbourhood Garden is always looking for new volunteers!
If you are interested in joining us, please fill out the contact form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
In the spring of 2011 Danielle (our designer) synthesized the information gathered from the first three workshops she organized and came up with a final Site Design, Analysis and Work Plan for the garden and her university thesis.
Upon recommendation from a review panel of professional landscape architects, she submitted the project to the American Association of Landscape Architecture’s Annual Student Design Competition.
Newtonbrook United Church (NUC) – The Taiwanese United Church in Toronto (TUCT) are pleased to inform you of an exciting new project in your neighbourhood. The Green Team at NUC is leading the conversion of the church’s south lawn into Newtonbrook’s new community garden. Our goal is to get to know our neighbours and for our neighbours to get to know us by creating a garden and meeting place of which the neighbourhood dwellers will be proud.
Features of the garden will include: flowers for all to enjoy including pollinators, raised planting beds, fruit trees, a meeting area, and spaces for education and meditation.
Most of the organically grown food will help supply the Wednesday NUC-TUCT Drop-Inn program with fresh nutritious produce. The balance of the food will be shared with our local food bank and our volunteers.
To achieve these plans, a series of fun interactive workshops will take place.
We are always looking for volunteers of all ages and experience levels to help with the ongoing gardening chores.
