Gardening Portal

We are excited to share with you our new Gardening Portal! This freely available Portal was created to help people find gardening space (from “Yardsharers”), or connect with gardeners (or “Yardshare Gardeners”) interested in growing on your property, in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Our hope is to encourage quick and efficient sharing of gardening resources, so that no one needs to go without whatever they require to get themselves or others gardening!

Step 1. Create your free (yes, free!) account on our Gardening Portal, or simply login if you already have one.

Step 2. Once logged into the Portal, click on “Search Inventory” on the upper left hand side of the navigation to start looking for Yardshares and interested Yardshare Gardeners.

Step 3. If you find a Yardshare that you wish to learn more about, or a Yardshare Gardener with whom you wish to connect, select “Reserve” for that item. The person who has that item will then be notified of your request, and will let us know if they still can and wish to make it available.

Step 4: Wait to hear back if that item is available. We will do our best to get back to you within 72 hours. If we have not heard back from the item holder, we will let you know when we contact you.

Step 5: If the item is available, we will connect you with the item holder. It will then be up to you to decide how to proceed. Note: You are under no obligation, at any step of the way, to continue with your exchange. Should you feel uncomfortable at any point, we encourage you to stop it immediately.
