Bees at the Community Garden

Show your support for the Whitehorse Community Garden apiary proposal by sending an email to publicinput@Whitehorse.ca before April 25th. Approval of Bylaw 2016-16 will amend City of Whitehorse zoning to allow an apiary to be included in the community garden located downtown on

7th Avenue. Honey bees at the community garden will be sweet!

2016 Garden Sign Up

The sign up for the 2016 growing season will be Saturday, April 9th at the Whitehorse Public Library Meeting Room from noon until 2pm.

This is a first come first serve signup (I can't hold any plots for anyone).
Those gardeners from 2015 who fulfilled their volunteer time will get first choice of the plots. Anyone who did not complete their 12 hours of volunteer time will be expected to complete the remainder if they expect to get their plot back from last season. Otherwise, your name will just register in the general signup with the new gardeners.
Fees for new gardeners are $20 annual membership fee + $20 bed deposit + $5 shed key deposit for a total of $45.
Returning gardeners only pay the $20 annual membership (and the $5 shed key deposit if you need a new one)
We accept cash or cheque.

See you there!
