Sweets & Seeds

If you’ve got a green thumb, a sweet tooth, or a love of supporting local makers, you won’t want to miss GeNA’s upcoming 3-in-1 event on Saturday, May 20th, 2023.

Our 4th annual Sweets & Seeds event takes place at the Big Red Church (Gordon-King Memorial United Church, 127 Cobourg) from 10am to 2pm.

The event includes:

Bake Sale

Featuring cookies, squares and much more! The bake sale is our primary fundraiser for the year: all proceeds raised help pay for our insurance and help us hold fun events in the neighbourhood! Glenelm’s own John Russell Honey Company will be at the sale as well, and generously donating profits from their sales to GeNA.  Bring cash!

WANT TO HELP? We are looking for bakers who would be willing to contribute some delicious treats for the bake table. If you’d like to donate some baked goods, please email glenelmcommunity@gmail.com to be put in touch with our bake sale planning team.

Plant & Seed Swap

A great way to diversify your garden and meet fellow plant-lovers. Get creative!  Whether it’s seeds, plants you’ve started, slips that are in water developing roots or bulbs, all are welcome.

Glenelm Makers’ Market

Back for a second year, neighbourhood artisans will be selling their “made in Glenelm” creations. A raffle-style silent auction will also be held in support of GeNA.

Please bring cash; some makers may accept additional forms of payment.
