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.
