Programming and Events


Summer programming at Abbey Gardens will look a little different than usual during these unprecedented times. Although our traditional summer camps will be put on hold for this summer, we are planning safe, outdoor programs that your children will enjoy! To find out more information and to register, please contact Irene Heaven at


We are passionate about sharing experiences about gardening, ecology and cooking through workshops, volunteer opportunities, tours, field trips and day programs for children and adults. Our 5 acres of natural program area, developing trail systems, gardens and Food Hub create the perfect canvas for experiential learning!  View our calendar of events or sign up and pay for a workshop below.

Please note our online programming booking is temporarily offline as we complete some technical updates.  If you have any questions or would like to book a workshop or event, please contact

 Just For Kids

We welcome school groups, daycare centres and camps on site throughout the season. For more information and program descriptions, please see our Programming Information Package.


Do you homeschool your children and are looking for a fun and social outlet for them to learn all about sustainable living? Join our homeschool program! We meet once a week on Wednesdays for 7 weeks in the spring and fall to explore the Abbey Gardens’ property together! We learn about gardening, nature, ecology and cooking. This program was created in 2013 and has been growing every year! In fact, in 2020 we started our first winter session and it was a huge success!

Our spring sessions typically run from the beginning of May to mid-June and our fall sessions from mid-September to the end of October. To confirm dates, get more information or to register your child(ren), please contact Irene at or (705)754-4769.
