Locals who have a green thumb and those who are new to the growing game have a place to turn for advice and ideas.
Barrie Urban Gardeners (B.U.G) is a new Facebook group meant to unite
the gardening community by encouraging the growth of vegetables and herbs to promote local food security and a resilient food system.
The success of other Facebook groups such as Barrie Families Unite, and the publics growing interest in food cultivation inspired B.U.G’s creation.
Residents can ask questions, share tips, and work together to grow healthy local food in their yard, balcony, indoors, or community gardens.
Start your growing by joining the group here.
