We will not be distributing seed or berry bushes during our extended break. If you're looking for garlic seed, contact the Garlic Garden, the Canadian Prairie Garlic Escape or visit your local, organic grocery store. Tips on growing garlic can be found below!
The WAM Garlic project was initiated in 2010 to promote local food production in Saskatoon. WAM supplies garlic seed to yard donors who work with volunteers to plant, maintain and harvest beautiful, delicious, high-quality garlic. Some of the harvest is kept by yard donors while the rest is donated back to the project where it is either used for seed, donated to community organizations or sold to local restaurants and grocery stores to help fund the project in future years.
Response has been overwhelming. To date, WAM has helped plant thousands of cloves in nearly 100 different plots!
