Applications to the CGDF can be submitted year round. They will be assessed as they are received.
Applications received during 2021 will be assessed on an ongoing basis, as opposed to a single deadline each winter. While it is likely that most gardens applying in 2021 will receive funding in 2021, it is possible that some will not be able to access funding until 2021. We are also seeking sponsorship opportunities for 2021 gardens to help fund as many gardens as are ready.
Prospective gardens will have different needs for land access approvals depending on who owns the land the garden is seeking to use. Gardens wishing to build on City-owned land will take longer to approve. For those wishing to build on City-owned land in 2021, we strongly recommend you get your proposal in by the end of May 2021.
Those interested in building on National Capital Commission Urban Lands, the NCC conducted a pilot garden in 2017. There are also gardens on NCC Greenbelt lands. Please contact the coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
