There are a variety of ways to help:
• Be a Garden Host.
• Don’t have a front yard garden but ready to share information on container gardening or worm composting or the like? We’ll match you up with a neighbour with space to offer.
• Have space but not the inclination? Why not lend us your driveway or yard to let a neighbour showcase their container plants or the like?
• Host an information table to help your organization connect with local residents.
• Help organize behind the scenes. Plant the seeds of the event, sow to speak.
• Come visit your neighbours and their gardens on Saturday, September 19, 2020.
Please see our website — oldeberlintown.ca/gardentour — for more details.
If you are interested in being a “Garden Host” or contributing in another way, please email Hal (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Be a Garden Host
Would you be willing to be a “Garden Host”? Garden Hosts introduce visitors to their front yard gardens. Hosts stand inside their gardens, while neighbours remain on the sidewalk. Hosts discuss any aspects of gardening that meet their fancy.
Is there a particular aspect of gardening you will share? For example, will you focus on shade gardening, or native plants, or pollinator plants? How would you describe your garden? We’d like to insert a two-or three word description with each participating garden.
We will provide Garden Hosts with:
1) signs to help visitors find your garden, and nametags to wear during the tour
2) chalk to demarcate spaces where visitors can stand and still be two metres away from other households,
3) Garden Tour maps to help Hosts direct visitors toward nearby participating gardens and points of interest, and
4) Guidelines on ensuring a safe and successful tour
