Here We Grow

Kitchen Garden Here We Grow Planting Event

Here We Grow – Farm Fresh – You can eat what you Grow

Optimist Club of Brooklin members in cooperation with Brooklin Horticultural Society.

You don’t need a farm to be a farmer!

Kitchen Garden

The program is designed for school aged children and their families. Join us as we partner with various local experts and businesses for crafts and activities in an effort to learn more about self sustainability and growing and raising your own food.

There are usually a number of information tables set up to help inform about Durham farm information, Region of Durham exhibits and so on.

All youth participants will have an opportunity to plant a small kitchen garden typically with a cherry tomato plant, bean or sweet pepper, or various herbs.


$5.00 general admission (babes in arms are free). All of the money raised goes back into the Optimist Club and helps with all the events we do as “Friends of Youth” in Brooklin.

The Optimist Club members provide these events to fulfill our motto of “Friends of Youth”.

You are welcome to take photos of yourself and your family (there will be plenty of great opportunities for capturing memories so please remember your camera).
