Welcome to Springbank!

Every spring it happens – the blankets of snow, piled high during the winter, peel back exposing the rich soils of Springbank. The winter rest is over and now the soil is ready to welcome visitors back for yet another season.

Spring bank has evolved into a multi-use facility that includes more than 100 garden plots available to gardeners from the community, education gardens that support school programs, and the Community Roots/Foodbank Gardens. The grasslands and nearby forest make Springbank a popular spot for birders. It is also home to North House, the solar powered home that was move to rare in 2012. Tours there are a must for people interested in green living.
