Update on 2020 Registration

Hello gardeners,

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during the current situation.  Everyone must be looking forward to being able to get out to our little garden and enjoy the improving weather and longer days of sunlight.  Like everyone else, the committee is still trying to understand how best to operate under the restrictions on gatherings. 

In the short term, we’ve slightly modified the registration forms.

The Waiver and the Registration form

There are two ways to complete the Registration and Waiver Forms.

  1. Print the attached forms.  Complete them, scan and return by e-mail
  2. Visit the site and download the Waiver and Registration forms.  Fill them out by using a PDF tool such as Acrobat.  Instructions from Adobe can be found here:


If you can fill in the forms electronically, save and send them in, that would be easiest for us.  Of course,

 If you cannot do either, please do at least send us an email ( if you have not already ) to let us know you are returning, and we’ll figure out the best way to accommodate the forms at a later time.  We will at least need some acceptance of the waiver, your current contact details and emergency information for our records, before we start growing. 

As for payments, if your bank supports it, you can send an e-transfer to our garden email stbarnabasgarden@gmail.com

address.  It will be received by the treasurer, Simon, in trust, and once all payments are received, he will write a cheque to the Garden, care of the Church.  The same email address will also work if you are a PayPal user.  If neither of those options work, again, please contact us to at least confirm you are returning to the Garden, and we will find a way to accommodate you in future.

At present, it does not look like a productive and safe workday can be held in the near future.  We will be considering the best ways to get the garden set up in time for the growing season, but some tasks may have to be deferred until later – especially things like spreading mulch.

Once we have a plan, we may ask for those of you who are able to, to volunteer.  Finally, there are two un-assigned beds at the moment.  If you are interested in moving to bed 4 or bed 10, we can accommodate that on a “first received” email basis.
