Growing Our Green Thumbs!

Launching Gardening Initiatives for the Summer of 2017!

The Sharing Place Food Bank is excited to launch new gardening initiatives this summer thanks to two grants received from The Ontario Association of Food Banks' Feeding Fresh! Sysco Community Garden Program and Food Banks Canada 2017 +Fresh Community Gardens Fund.  

We're growing our tower gardens, living wall planter gardens, and partnerships with this city's gardening community to help ensure that fresh, healthy food is available for all of our neighbours, and to ensure that green thumbs are a possibility for everyone! But we need your help!!

We are creating a new Sharing Place Garden Committee to help us organize and make sure are garden projects are healthy and sustainable for the future.  We're looking for community members with all levels of gardening experience to join our committee and help us make the most of every gardening opportunity!

Our first information meeting is scheduled for Thursday June 1st at 6:30 at The Sharing Place (22 West Street South - main door off of side ramp).  Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP Emily Wilson, Outreach Coordinator, at emily(at) or call 705-327-4273 ext. 102.

Let's get growing our green thumbs together Orillia!
