Town and partners host small garden giveaway May 22

Want to grow your own vegetables, but don’t have the space for a garden?

The Town is pleased to announce a partnership with Plastiglas Ltd. and Arnts The Landscape Supplier Inc. to provide a limited supply of 500 small garden kits to Ajax residents that are new to gardening or do not have space to garden at their homes. The small garden is meant to inspire residents to stay active at home, develop their green thumb, and assist with personal food sustainability.

Event details:

  • Friday, May 22
  • 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (Please note, the event will run as supplies last.)
  • Audley Recreation Centre - 1955 Audley Rd. N.

Each kit includes:

  • One durable, fiberglass planter manufactured and donated by Plastiglas Ltd.,
  • Three (3) bags of soil donated by Arnts The Landscape Supplier Inc.,
  • Two (2) vegetable seedling packets, and
  • Instructions for planting.

To ensure physical safety, this is a drive-thru style event:

  • Residents will drive through the parking lot, and show their identification with an Ajax address through their vehicle window
  • The kit will be placed directly in their trunks by Town staff and volunteers from Plastiglas and Arnst
  • Physical distancing and public health protocols will be employed by those handling the kits
