Want to do bare gardening at Bare Oaks?

Square Foot community gardens at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park

Since Bruce first built the community gardens in 2010, we have been 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. There is a video on YouTube that explains it well.

This year Bruce rebuilt the 4' x 4' raised beds and he 4'x4' and are now available for planting.  He provided the labour and Bare Oaks paid for the materials so using the garden is free for members. They are available on a first come, first served basis.

To reserve your garden plot, 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 a maximum of 3 plots.

It's time again for our annual volunteer day. While there are many people volunteering all year, this is the day we set aside for a massive volunteer effort to get things ready for the season. We are told that it is also a fun day that many people look forward to.
