The #UrbanSugaringProject returns for 2022! Sap collecting kits will be available for pickup on Saturday, February 5th from 11 am to 1 pm at the Church of the Apostles (86 Glasgow St N). Kits are $10 each (plus a $10 refundable deposit) and provide participants with instructions, a metal bucket and tree tap, as well as a food grade bucket for transporting the sap. Participants will drop off their collected sap at set times, and the sap is then boiled, bottled, and redistributed amongst participants. If you’ve got a maple tree or two (or three!) tap in to the Urban Sugaring Project this winter!#Guelph #Ontario #canada🇨🇦 #Maple #SugarMaple #MapleSyrup See MoreSee Less

Seems like today is the perfect day to bundle up inside and dream of spring 🌱☘️ bring a bit of the garden indoors this winter with sprouts and microgreens. Sprouts are an amazing source of nutrients and vitamins throughout these dark cold months and go well with most meals I’ve been preparing these days! Tune in this Wednesday at 3pm on @gtoollibrary Instagram for a livestream about growing your own micro greens and sprouts. If you can’t make the livestream at 3pm – we always post the video to the IGTV!! There you can find all of the past videos we’ve made 👩🏼‍🌾...We are excited to announce that this Livestream and more to come are funded by the @peaveymart Community Agriculture Grant 2021 🍁🌼...#gardening #gardenplanning #freeworkshop #gardeninglivestream #gardens #seeds #microgreens #vegetablegarden #guelph #guelphontario #guelphlove #guelphlife #guelphsmallbusiness #skillshare #sprouts #indoorgardening #communitygardens #community See MoreSee Less

It’s that time of year again – time to plant some seeds and toss them outside in the snow! We are not kidding! Join Meredith from the Backyard Caring program at The Guelph Tool library for a virtual workshop on winter sowing as part of the Urban Food Initiative brought to you in part by our Peavey Industries Community Agriculture Grant.Tickets are available on a sliding scale, and come with a choice of "Ticket only, no kit" and "Ticket + Kit". Please choose the ticket option that works best for you and your financial situation. The workshop will take place over zoom and sessions will not be recorded. Both sessions will offer the same great information, and tickets are for a single session. Kits will be available for pickup through the Guelph Tool Library prior to the workshop (dates TBA). To help you get started, each includes; a large pre-cut container, soil, seeds and a label. Winter Sowing is an easy and worry free way to start seeds for hardy seedlings in the spring. Many containers can work and is a great upcycling activity for all ages. We hosted this workshop last year and have learned so much, the results were amazing and we are very excited to share this technique again! See MoreSee Less
