2019 Garden Pause

Breslau Mennonite Church is currently entering a Senior’s Housing project, building apartment-style living spaces for our young-at-heart population in the Breslau community.

Due to this redevelopment and some changes of land allocation, the garden committee has decided to press pause on the garden project for the 2019 growing season for a “fallow year”. We appreciate the community support we’ve had for the past 4 years, and look forward to continuing with the project in 2020.

Our new garden space will also include harvesting water from the roof of the new development, and will have close proximity to the housing, yet will continue to be accessible to the entire community.

If you have any questions, please email alcharette11@gmail.com. We look forward to growing again with you next year!

2018 Plots Now Available!

The time has come! Breslau Gardens is excited to begin its 2018 growing season, and is now accepting plot applications from the community! If you are eager to grow your own food and get to know others in the Breslau community, you are encouraged to sign up!

Be sure to apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment! Visit the Apply for a Plot in 2018 page for more information.

We look forward to a great group of gardeners in 2018.

2018 Is Here!

Please note: This is the same post from 2017, but the information still applies for this year. Stay tuned to later this spring!

During this spell of warm weather, we have noticed many people considering their gardens this year, and we couldn’t be more excited ourselves! Gardens are a source of food, comfort, and most importantly community, something we could definitely use more of now in times of uncertainty. Breslau Gardens is committed to creating a space to nurture this, and put the community in community garden.

We will not be starting the application process to receive a plot in the 2018 garden until later in the spring, so please stay posted to this blog or the Breslau Facebook group for more information. We are still in the planning stages of the garden, but are hopeful to be able to offer more to the community, creating an inviting, welcoming space for everyone.

If you have any questions or comments, please visit the contact us page for more information.


We’re so excited for spring, we wet our plants!

Spring is here! The weather is warming up, and new life is coming up from the ground. With that, the growing season has begun. The planning committee has been working hard to prepare for growing. The plots are now marked off, and wood chips have been put in. All is ready to have a fantastic gardening experience in 2016.

Now that the weather is on our side, the debate is on… What to plant? In the Breslau area, the options are limitless, as the garden has great soil and conditions to grow almost anything! While there are the classics: beans, peas, tomatoes, and carrots; there is also some new foods emerging that are growing increasingly popular! Why not try kale? Being a super food, it is easy to grow and easy to love. Get creative! At Breslau Gardens, we are looking forward to seeing everything our gardeners grow and the many successes we hope to encounter.

Breslau Craft Show a Success!

Thank you to everyone who attended the Breslau Craft Show Saturday and visited our table! We look forward to hearing from you in the near future! If you are interested in a plot, please contact us and we will add you to our list. It is great to hear all the support that came from the community!
