The Markham Homegrown project has three programs: Seed Libraries, Workshops, and Community and Allotment Gardens.

Markham Public Library and the City of Markham’s Sustainability Office are piloting the Markham Homegrown Seed Library. Residents can “borrow” seeds from the library and take to their home or community garden to plant. In the late summer and fall, the City will hold seed saving workshops. There, you can learn to “return” the seeds to the library. Visit the Markham Public Library website for more information.

Markham Homegrown Workshops show you how to grow your own successful, organic garden. Get:

  • Free gardening workshops
  • Seed-saving tips
  • Gardening newsletters
  • Much more!

Markham Homegrown Community and Allotment Gardens are usually for people who live in condos. But, if you need more growing space you can use them, too! Help Markham by growing, cleaning, and maintaining our gardens!
