Spring Hike, Plant & Compost Sale

Saturday, May 11, 2024



  • Saturday May 11, 2024, at the Columbus Centre parking lot, in Goderich
  • Plants and compost for sale from 10am – 2pm
  • One-Hour Guided hike in the Maitland Woods at 1pm

Each May, MTA, the John Hindmarsh Environmental Trust Fund, and the Maitland Conservation Foundation hold their annual Plant and Compost Sale at the lovely Maitland Woods (Columbus Centre on Parson’s Court in Goderich).  Proceeds of the sale go to several local organizations:

Pick up some new and interesting plants for your garden, as well as compost to provide that ever-needed enrichment…plants for all gardens; perennials, sun-loving, shade-tolerant, natives and herbs.

There will also be a limited amount of bagged compost available. It often sells out early!

This is also a good opportunity to donate excess plants from your garden. If you have donations, bring them to the sale site before 10am, or contact us 1-2 days ahead of time.

On the same afternoon, there will be a guided hike through the Maitland Woods suitable for all ages.
