The Naked Gardens


For those of you would like to have a garden plot at Bare Oaks, we announce the opening of “The Naked Gardens”. There's no better way to feel at one with nature than to tend your garden and then harvest the fruits of your labour. It's also a wonderful learning experience for children.

We are doing Square Foot Gardening. It's a more environmentally friendly way to garden where you get the same production but in only 20% of the space. It is easy plus it saves water, resources, time and effort. Visit www.squarefootgardening.com for more details

The 4'x4' raised beds are now available for planting.  There is a cost of $35.00 per bed for the soil mixture.  Bare Oaks is providing the frames and space.  The beds are available on a first come, first served basis.  To reserve your garden plot, contact the Bare Oaks office or send an email to: NakedGardens@BareOaks.ca.

Participation in The Naked Gardens is easy. There are just a few things to keep in mind:

  1. This is an organic garden.  No pesticides or herbicides may be used.
  2. Only the Square Foot Gardening method is permitted.  
  3. Each gardener is responsible for their plot(s).  Any naked gardener who does not maintain their plot(s) will forfeit the use of the plot(s) and any access to the produce.
  4. If this is your first time trying Square Foot Gardening, please limit yourself to 3 plots.
