Volunteer with the Eastern Ontario Garlic Festival – Details coming soon.  The Festival will be on a Sunday in August, and hosted in a rural area of the Counties of SDG.

Kozroots Community Empowerment Projects is inviting volunteers to help make the Eastern Ontario Garlic Festival a celebration of agriculture, local food, art, talent and more!

Are you keen on working with others, want to share your ideas and creativity, while encouraging local farmers, artists, and other folks committed to the cause? Then why not consider joining the #eogarlicfest planning committee and share your own local assets? More info on how to get involved coming soon.

On the day of this jam-packed event we will require volunteers of all types (including highschool students).

The New Application will be updated soon.

Planning Committee

Time: Bi-weekly meeting online, in person or onsite. A chance to share your vision and creativity for local food and fun!
