June 3, in Grafton, Ontario, when we clean up and prepare the garden for planting.

This garden serves the Plast kids summer camps that take place all of July, provides kitchen herbs all season long, and is a source of fresh organic vegetables for the Folk Camp kitchen!

You'll have a chance to contribute to the community, learn about soil, direct seeding vs. transplanting, herbs, composting, and more. Kids are welcome to come to hang out and play, or join the work activities as well. 

Donations of transplants are welcome!
