The world as we knew it has changed and the Haliburton Master Gardeners have noticed a need in our community and they would be available to advise new gardeners with sustainable gardening at their location. This includes growing vegetables, planting fruit bushes and or trees and herbs. There are also many so called weeds that can be eaten. They grow naturally and are quite nutritious.

As master gardeners they would like to share their knowledge and are asking for a donation of $50.00 plus gas mileage, they would of course do this outside with much social distancing.  If you feel this is something you would like to do, please contact us at
