As of Spring 2021, the Georgian Bay Biosphere (GBB) and the Township of Georgian Bay plan to
coordinate the construction and maintenance of the Port Severn Community Garden (PSCG) to grow
fruits and vegetables. This garden will be the first of its kind in Port Severn and will build on
GBB’s 12-year history of providing food skills opportunities. This garden is also a climate action
demonstration site; food production will be calculated against the usual carbon emissions of the
produce harvested.

Garden plots will be free, first-come first-served to residents who apply through the Township. A
waiting list will be kept for applicants after the garden is fully allocated. Twenty percent of produce grown is encouraged as a donation to the Honey Harbour Food Bank. The remaining 80% will be kept by the grower. Participants will feel they are contributing and connected to the community and will benefit from physical activity and fresh produce. The gardens are organic, with composters, rain barrels, and a toolbox for storage with a lock.

Please see the Project Overview for more details.
