Centre the Map
These are the most common model of community gardens. Community gardens feature plots for individual rental, community plots that are grown for donation (Plant a Row, Donate a Row) to local families or food cupboards, as well as communal plots like herb gardens or tea gardens that can be used by all gardeners or fellow community members. In order to apply for a plot with a community garden, contact them directly by clicking on the garden pin of your choice on the map below. Please note that many gardens have wait lists and many others will also be prioritizing community members in close proximity to the garden site. If there are no community gardens near your residency, or if they are all full, consider starting a new community garden.
These gardens are located at schools and are used by teachers and students as part of curricula. Parents of students may be able to be involved in the summer, but these are not gardens where community members can access individual plots. For more information on School Gardens please Visit the Canadian Organic Growers website for the Growing Up Organic (GUO) program.
Plant-a-Row Donate-a-Row Gardens
These are gardens that are focused primarily on growing produce for donation. Many Community Gardens will feature some kind of PARDAR program, while some gardens are entirely devoted to donation. These gardens may be seeking volunteers to assist with food production, but do not offer individual plots. To get involved, choose the garden of your choice and email the Coordinator directly using the contact information provided on the Garden Map pin.
Children’s & Communal Gardens
Children’s gardens are spaces that are devoted to children’s learning, discovering and growing! Like donation gardens, children’s gardens do not generally feature individual plots for rental. Similarly, Communal Gardens are spaces where community members can grow food together & share in the harvest communally. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how Children’s Gardens and/or Communal Community Gardens work. Explore the map below to find the closest one near you.
