Green Block Growing

A small group gathers outdoors in a garden to learn about soil health.

Sharing and learning together in community is at the centre of our “Green Block” project. All are welcome to join our Monday meet-ups (April – November) where we explore a different topic and hands on activity each week.

The Green Block is also the site for various events ranging from native plant giveaways to learning side by side with permaculture and gardening experts.

With funding support from the Ed Smee Fund (2022) and City of Hamilton (2023).

Funded with proceeds from Action 13’s plant sales (2023) with kickstart funding through a City of Hamilton Placemaking Grant (2021).
