Free at-home garden application day - FULL - thank you for your interest!

The City of Waterloo offered an at-home garden opportunity to support resident health and well-being during this difficult time. This free program will provide neighbours with a recreational outlet to assist with spiritual, emotional, physical and cognitive health, provide low cost opportunity for access to food, and strengthen neighbourhood connections through sharing of garden tips, tricks, and ideas.

Applications were accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis by ward. Each garden kit will be the same and will include soil, containers, assorted vegetables and herbs, and planting information. Substitutions are not available and kits must be picked up on a specified date and time. Unfortunately, not all applicants are guaranteed participation in the at-home garden opportunity, as supplies are limited.
