Community Gardens

A Community Garden is a group of people coming together to nurture, develop, and sustain a growing space in their community. This type of garden reflects the area it serves; engaging, educating, building and strengthening community in a significant way.  There are over 90 community garden sites now operating throughout the Capital region promoting local, organically grown food; healthy and active lifestyles; and safer, more vibrant and connected communities.

We provide over $30,000 in grants annually to Community Gardens within the City of Edmonton limits. Whether you are just starting a new garden, looking to expand, renovate, or renew an existing community garden we can can help with funding, resources and support. To learn more or to get the grant process started please contact Junetta Jamerson at cgfacilitator@sustainablefoodedmonton.org

Our Vision: A community garden in every neighbourhood.

Community Garden Program Purpose: 

  • We provide support, assistance, and encouragement through the process of starting community gardens;
  • We connect to, and with, existing community gardens; and
  • We respond to emerging needs of all community gardens and gardeners.

Community Garden Program Guiding Principles:

  • Community gardens are community owned, operated, and maintained.
  • Community gardens are stronger when connected to each other.
