The Timmins Community Gardens is gearing up for planting season. They are hosting their annual meet and greet next week, in the hopes of getting some new members.

There will be two presentations, one about organic gardening, and the other about the soil in Timmins. There is going to be information booths from local farmers, and the Timmins Good Food Box.

New gardeners can buy a community garden plot, or trade seeds with other green thumbs. The event is on Wednesday May 13th, at the Covenant United Church.
