Work Bees

nterested in Volunteering  with us?

We are old!   Theresa’s hips feel like she has been an organic farmer since the dawn of time.   So – the only way we can bring you drop dead gorgeous flowers (and cool the planet with our ecological practices at the same time)  is if we have some help!! 


Enjoy some fresh air. Learn some skills.  Take home some loot (plants, seeds, flowers…) .  No commitment.  But you need to email us that you are coming!! Sometimes we change things last minute and we may need to get in touch with you. If its raining we will cancel. 

In 2020 we’ll be having several workbees.  We will post the dates in early January.  This is what we are planning for:


Seedling workbee –  helping us to seed,  pot up and label annuals and perennials in the greenhouse (around Easter). Participants will take home seedlings and seeds.

Planting Frenzy –  help us lay landscape fabric and plant early annuals (mid May). participants will take home seeds and seedlings.

Perennials & Herbs – help us weed and mulch our perennial and herb beds,  and plant some new perennials. (Late May-early June). Participants will take home perennial divisions.

Peionies –  dividing and planting peonies and other perennials perhaps. (around Labour Day).  Participants will take home peony and perennial divisions.

Fall Bulb Planting –  help us planting our bulbs and take some bulbs home (early October)

Dahlia  Dig –  help us dig our dahlias and take extra tubers home (late October)
