Consultation has concluded

In 2019 the City of Guelph collected input for four proposed community gardens for 2020 including:

  • How people felt about the proposed community gardens
  • What people thought of the proposed locations
  • What feedback people had about the proposed community gardens
  • How people felt about participating in a garden if approved

All four proposed locations were approved for new community gardens. A summary of engagement is available online.

The community garden at Burns Drive Park will move forward immediately and be ready for planting this year.

The community gardens at Stephanie Drive Park, St. George’s Park and Mollison Drive Park will be built this fall and ready for gardening in 2021.

About Guelph’s Community Gardens

Community Gardens are parcels of land used by neighbourhood residents to collectively grow their own vegetables, herbs, pollinator flowers and/or fruit. Community Gardens are vibrant spaces, providing the opportunity for neighbours to meet and work together to improve neighbourhoods, gain a sense of community and connection to the environment.

The community garden program encourages volunteers to use City parks as locations for fruit, vegetable and pollinator gardens that benefit the community. Having fruits and vegetables grown just around the corner in your park brings a whole new meaning to local food. Pollinator gardens provide a food source for a variety of wildlife including insects and some bird species. Visit guelph.ca/communitygardens to learn more.
