North Bay Heritage Gardeners

Education/ Volunteer Appreciation

Garden Design Crowd

The North Bay Heritage Gardeners is dedicated to developing a year-round community-based educational, horticultural, and environmental program. We focus on fostering pride and growth through enhancing and beautifying the North Bay waterfront and other approved areas.

Horticultural Education

We have an ongoing horticultural educational program that is open to all Heritage Gardeners as well as the general public. Education sessions are in the classroom or hands-on right in the garden beds. Class room type sessions will be presented at the North Bay Public Library on Worthington Street East in the Auditorium or at Discovery North Bay Museum (the former CP Station) on the second floor in the Upper Gallery.  Seating for these sessions is limited, so interested participants must call the Heritage Gardener Coordinator to reserve a space. Feel free to bring a friend, just reserve a space for him or her too. 

Please bring your own mug if you would like tea or coffee. We generally have organic Fair Trade coffee from TWIGGS at our events as well as organic herbal teas. Bringing your own mug cuts down on the use of foam and paper cups. Donations to help cover the costs of our educational speakers are always welcome.
