Community gardens are plots of where community volunteers produce food, flowers, native and ornamental plants, edible berries and food perennials. The garden collective takes initiative and responsibility for organizing, maintaining and managing the garden area. This participation provides neighbourhood residents and families with the opportunity to become engaged in a healthy recreation activity while growing nutritious food, meeting neighbours, learning about the growing cycle and beautifying open space. Community gardens build skills and create positive community development that is widely accessible to a diverse range of people.

Queen Elizabeth School Community Garden
Similar to the 2020 growing season, continued COVID restrictions in 2021 limited the use of the Queen Elizabeth School garden as a shared space. Instead, the garden plots were planted and tended by one gardener and his family. All produce grown will be distributed to the families of students attending the school who are in need.
