Community Gardens

Providing seedlings, equipment and education to your local community gardens.

The Community Garden Program consists of weekly visits by our coordinators to different community gardens in the West Island, for a period of 13 weeks throughout the summer months.


Our Garden Coordinators are hired through the Canada Summer Jobs Program, during which they too gain important gardening knowledge and experience. The main responsibilities of our coordinators are to provide free seeds, foster a sense of community, provide a safe space to create a connection with nature, give tips on how to manage a garden throughout the season, and highlight the simplicity of readily available produce.

Workshops on nutrition, nature, and on cooking with the produce harvested are also presented as part of this program.

If you'd like us to start a community garden near you (on the West Island), please write to us at
